Panel: Constructing Tomorrow - Building Materials of the Future

It is evident: the use of sustainable building materials is crucial for the construction industry of the future. Wood asphalt, cement-free building with sand, sustainable insulation materials made from straw and coconut fiber - all of these and more could be the materials of the future for our homes. By employing innovative materials, energy, water, and CO2 emissions can be reduced, thus making a positive contribution to climate protection. The question here, however, is: how can we accelerate the implementation of sustainable materials, what revolutionary ideas already exist to make the construction industry more sustainable, and how do we transition from talking to action?

The use of sustainable building materials can achieve energy savings in buildings, thus reducing energy consumption and promoting the transition to clean energy.

Promoting innovative materials and construction methods is a crucial part of developing sustainable infrastructure. Utilizing technology and innovations in the construction industry can contribute to developing more efficient and environmentally friendly building materials and construction processes.

Promoting sustainable building materials and construction methods contributes to creating sustainable and resilient cities. This can help reduce the ecological footprint of cities and improve their adaptability to climate change.

The use of sustainable building materials promotes more sustainable consumption and production patterns by reducing resource consumption, minimizing waste, and decreasing the use of harmful chemicals.

Implementing sustainable building materials and construction methods can help reduce the carbon footprint of the construction sector by decreasing the use of fossil fuels and improving the energy efficiency of buildings.
