Sustainability

Buildings account for 40% of total energy consumption and CO2 emissions in the European Union. For this reason, environmental policies should include buildings as a key part of the solution to climate change.

Energy efficiency is the key to the development of environmentally sustainable construction, based on better use of natural and technological resources available to improve our social and environmental.
