The Building & Construction industry represents a significant portion of global GHG emissions, with the materials used, as well as the heating, cooling and lighting of buildings all contributing to the industry's carbon footprint.
Those in the industry are all generally in agreement that building more green infrastructure is crucial for reducing emissions from the sector. As such, more and more countries are putting building energy codes in place, green building certification is on the rise, and investment in energy efficiency is increasing. But how will changing regulation and rising costs of raw materials impact the future creditworthiness of the Building & Construction industry?
