Responsible sourcing and sustainable living

May 10, 2019

How important are sustainable practices going to be in the coming years? As cities and our infrastructure continue to grow, the need for viable and environmentally friendly practices in the building sector will become even more necessary than it already is.

As populations continue to rise, so does urban growth and our need for raw materials, for example, between 2000-2010, our material footprint increased in all regions of the world. 

Waste not, want not 

The building sector is responsible for a third of all waste that ends up in landfills each year. To help offset this environmentally impactful practice, waste material projects and technologies, like upcycling, are being implemented to return used materials into products with commercial value, helping reduce waste and lowering the demand of virgin raw materials. 

Circulating raw material

To move away from the current, more linear consumption method, the circular economy philosophy aims to close the linear consumption loop, reducing our material footprint, by re-using resources efficiently and profitably. 

The proper management of waste is a vital part of our sustainable future and using the right materials can contribute to sustainable living. 

Sustainable construction

The need for developers to partner with manufacturers that offer sustainable materials and end-of-life programs, like upcycling, which transforms used building materials into products with the same qualities as those of virgin materials, is vital. It decreases the amount of waste sent to landfills each year and reduces our material footprint, creating a cleaner and more efficient sustainable future.
