Obviously, the construction industry can play an important role in protecting the natural environment on which we live, from deciding where to build, placing transportation corridors, protecting resources, etc. to the actual impact of buildings on nature (such as air pollution, climate change, water pollution, garbage, landfill). Will explore the role of the construction industry in protecting the natural environment and identify actions needed for systemic change.

Construction-led action for net zero
Our built environment fits the target, and we have set a 100% net zero target. We need abandon the problems of outdated infrastructure, low productivity, poor health and deterioration of the natural environment, in order to have a healthy natural environment that can improve life, effectively reuse and renovate buildings, and maintain a good low-carbon environment.
