Why choose Eco-Construction materials?
Living in a healthy & safe environment is a dream of every middle class family. According to some reports and statistics published, developing countries have recorded high level of migration towards urban areas which is booming construction and real estate industry. Need for permanent house is rising and specially apartment house are high on demand as they are affordable for a family having a descent amount of monthly or annual income. Those multi-storey apartments are benefitting local municipal bodies by generating home tax and other forms of service tax as well.
That’s what we see, our need to have a peaceful life in our own house, governments and municipal bodies look for tax generation and builder lobby to earn huge profits. But, this industry is becoming a threat to the regions as well. Construction industry, and to be specific residential construction industry is one of the largest Green House Gas (GHG) emitter in the world. Data published by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in association with International Energy Agency (IEA) in the Global Status Report for Building and Construction 2019, states that, “The buildings and construction sector globally is showing an increase in both emissions and energy use, limited progress on new and existing policies, and a further slowdown in energy-efficiency investment growth. More action is therefore needed to curb emissions and deliver a low-carbon, sustainable built environment”.
Building requires energy and water while construction and after it is ready for use. This has indirect ecological impacts which are seen later in the background. Building construction and operations accounted for the largest share of both global final energy use (36%) and energy related CO2 emissions (39%) in 2018.
Impact on Who & How?
Contamination is an issue that the development business can’t disregard. The principle kinds of contamination you should know about are air, water, soil, and noise. In the event that you don’t set up careful steps to oversee hurtful waste, it can straightforwardly influence site workers and individuals living close by. This incorporates making irreversible harm their wellbeing, with an unsettling join among toxins and disease.
Air contamination alludes to man-made outflows that are delivered into the environment. Helpless air quality is a worldwide wellbeing risk, liable for around 4.2 million unexpected losses in 2016. Further, air contamination contributes fundamentally to the warming of the planet, and hence to environmental change.
As development exercises are an enormous supporter of air contamination, associations inside the area have a common obligation to restrict the sum they produce. In this way, you’ll need to have a consciousness of the outflows your work exercises make and play it safe to restrict the unsafe effect.
What needs to be done?
In the changing environmental balance and extreme climate conditions it is better to have an eco-friendly house in order to curb heat island issue, and have a naturally insulated cool or warm house walls. The Most Eco-friendly Construction Materials are:
Recycled or Sustainable Wood
Broken or reusable glass
Other than above mentioned materials, construction waste material recycling should be promoted by the government to reduce the waste generated and lying down on the ground. It will not just help to reduce the waste but also help to reduce the demand for new raw materials which are not so sustainable.
Down the line, these are just few things we’ve mentioned. There’s lot more happening in the construction industry and it should be changed in the coming future to have a sustainable lifestyle.
