All industries can be sustainable. As a result, the word sustainability acquired numerous meanings and interpretations, making the thought superficial sometimes. However, for countries, businesses, or people who take sustainability seriously, it is about preserving the environment to secure and provide for the well-being of the future generations.

The construction industry is a major contributor to the sustainability of our world. Making the built environment sustainable has a good long-term effect to the environment, the economy, and with the quality of life.
