The 29-page report includes the exclusive results of an in-depth survey of construction sector sustainability professionals, along with key industry facts and stats, inspiring sustainability success stories and best-practice case studies from an array of construction initiatives and businesses. 


The report begins with a snapshot of the current state of the sector in the UK, based upon an in-depth survey of sustainability and energy professionals working across the industry. The environmental policies and regulations affecting the sector’s sustainability activities are then explored, before the UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC) provides its own expert viewpoint on construction sector sustainability.

It then goes on to explore three drivers, four challenges and five opportunities facing sustainability professionals in the sector, and concludes with an insight into the construction business model of the future. 

This report is the fifth in edie’s series of sector insight reports, following similar analysis into the publicretailmanufacturing and food and drink sectors. The final report, investigating the state of sustainability in the hospitality industry, will be published over the next month.
