Der er mening med galskaben

Min gode blogkollega Maja sendte mig nogle gode stats relateret til bæredygtighed og byggeri fra World Green Building Council. De mest interessante af dem vil jeg gerne dele med jer.

  • The building sector consumes 3 billion tonnes of raw materials annually, roughly 40-50% of total world resource consumption.
  • The built environment is responsible for about 20% of global water consumption.
  • One quarter of the wood harvested globally is used by the construction industry.
  • According to the IPCC, buildings account for 8.6 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide (or equivalent) emissions, or almost one quarter of total world emissions.
  • Overall buildings have a higher CO2 mitigation potential than any other sector. At a modest carbon price of less than $20 per tonne of CO2 equivalent, buildings could cut emissions by more than 5 Gigatonnes of CO2 equivalent per year, a reduction 3 times greater than any other sector.

Jeg synes tallene virkelig highlighter, hvor stort et potentiale der ligger i at tænke ressourceminimering inden for byggeriet – og ikke mindst, at det giver mening det vi har gang i.
