Sustainability in the Global Construction Industry 2011–2012 Market Trends and Opportunities


Between 2011 and 2012, buyer sustainability management budgets in the construction industry are expected to rise by 7%. This is believed to reflect the increasing need to adopt sustainability, comply with legislation, meet client demand and the interest of internal management in sustainability issues during the period.

Between 2011 and 2012, global respondents from supplier companies are expected to record an average increase of 4% in their sustainability budgets, which can be attributed to the increasing demand from clients, cost savings and the need to adopt green technologies.  Compliance with legislation’, ‘positive outcomes for the environment’ and ‘cost savings and operational efficiency’ ranked high for respondents from both buyer and supplier companies, as factors that influence the sustainability efforts of their organizations. As a general perception, sustainability is considered as a cost itself, however, in reality ‘cost savings’ act as a key driver for many companies in the global construction industry.

The implementation of sustainability is most prominent in the ‘production process’ and ‘transportation’ functions in the construction equipment and materials supplier category, while in other construction industry service providers, it is most implemented in ‘planning, design, and engineering process’ and ‘maintenance operations’.
