Over the last years, a lot of attention has been raised for sustainability, especially in the construction industry. The construction industry is one of the larger contributors to CO2 and overall pollution and therefore has and will have a central role in creating a more sustainable future. This increased attention has translated in more involvement of architects when it comes to specifying more sustainable and circular solutions.
The latest report of the European Architectural Barometer on sustainability and circularity (Q4 2020) answers questions like: What is the current status in Europe?

The full report provides key insights on the involvement, perception, characteristics and future outlooks of European architects when it comes to sustainability and circularity. On top of that, it contains the latest prognoses for the building volumes for 2021 in this report as well.
The report covers 8 countries (Spain, Italy, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland and the UK) is now available
