The Business

10% of global energy related carbon emissions are linked to construction and construction materials like- cement, steel and glass. 38% of total GHG emissions are due to the global building and construction sector. Unfortunately, 70% of harvested wood in the developing world is wasted, which has exacerbated the carbon and GHG emissions in the sector.
