How circular economy can drive greater sustainability and new business opportunities in construction
The construction industry is one of the world’s largest consumers of energy and raw materials. This is taking its toll on the environment: in the EU, construction is responsible for around 40% of CO2 emissions and nearly a third of all waste. But shifting from a linear to a circular economy would bring huge ecological improvements. What’s more, innovative new business models will account for an additional global market opportunity of more than EUR 600 billion by 2025, with a double-digit growth rate.
