Leading companies call for new framework conditions for sustainability in the construction industry

  • Sole concentration on the demand for heating energy leads to suboptimal results
  • More attention to resource and energy consumption in construction
  • Innovative structures enable flexible use, resource-friendly refurbishment and recycling

The construction industry has achieved enormous improvements with respect to ecological sustainability. To take advantage of further potentials, however, the framework conditions have to be changed, according to the tenor of a Leitbetriebe Austria event at the Grawatschgasse location of top Austrian building materials supplier Quester. Experts from leading companies in the construction, building materials and logistics sectors spoke on the subject of „success with sustainability“.

„In addition to social responsibility and corporate success, ecological sustainability is a central issue for leading Austrian companies“, according to Leitbetriebe Austria Managing Director Monica Rintersbacher. „In regard to energy efficiency and the conservation of resources, scarcely any other business segment can contribute as much to an overall improvement in Austria as the construction business. We are proud to successfully build a network of leading representatives of this industry and, as a result, to inspire further innovation“.
