Resource & Energy efficiency is about reducing CO2 footprint and protecting Earth’s limited resources measured across the construction life cycle.  Across the construction value chain this means reducing the environmental impact of production, transport and use/re-use of building materials and waste, use of construction equipment as well as from the structures that are built etc.

Research topics within Resource & Energy efficiency include but are not limited to:

• Construction process

• Building materials

• Transport and logistics

• Construction equipment

• Construction in different regions

• Recycling and reducing construction waste
