Potential climate and global changes are presently considered to be one of the biggest and toughest challenges for humanity. Sustainable development is the only adequate action that can prevent the degradation of our planet’s natural environment.
According to the Brundtland Report commissioned by the United Nations, also known as "Our Common Future," the term "sustainable development" is defined as follows: "Those paths of social, economic and political progress that meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
Construction is playing a major role in keeping the planet safe as 50% of all globally used resources are dedicated to universal construction. This is why sustainable construction is facing strict requirements to be fulfilled by selecting materials based on environmental performance, promoting energy efficiency, and also reducing water consumption.
Steel is the only truly cradle-to-cradle recycled material and steel construction products are one of the most sustainable building materials in the world as their recycling rate is more than 90%.
Steel components - structural frames, external walls, solar shadings - provide credit points for green building rating systems like USGBC's LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) or BREEAM (The Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method), which is highly crucial for today’s investors.
