When people think about sustainable construction, they usually think about energy consumption, emissions reduction, recycling and waste minimisation. However, sustainability is more than just about choosing ‘green’ building products – it is also about people. When ethical and social considerations are brought into the design and specification process, only then can true sustainability be achieved. When choosing who to work with, the difference between two products may be vast when ethical and social considerations are brought into the equation.
A new approach to sustainable construction: Keeping people at the centre of decision-making examines why keeping people in the picture is essential to building a sustainable future. We look at the social element of sustainability and highlight its impact on individuals, communities and organisations. We then examine key social and ethical issues in building and construction and highlight new, collaborative approaches that achieve better outcomes for people and the environment.
