Advancing Sustainability in the Construction Sector
During the spring of 2023, Ragn-Sells invited stakeholders to participate in a series of roundtable discussions on the construction sector. These six roundtables took place in major cities of Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Estonia.
Recently, the Global Alliance for Building and Construction's 2022 global status report, hosted by UN-Environment, revealed that the construction sector is responsible for approximately 37 percent of energy and process-related CO2 emissions and over 34 percent of global energy demand.
- If we are serious about creating a sustainable society, we have to use the raw materials we have already extracted, over and over again, and only by synergy we can do that, says Eli Jacobsen Head of Innovation Management at Ragn-Sells and coordinator of the roundtables.
