Material consumption of the Dutch Construction Sector – a series of research on building within planetary boundaries

The Netherlands faces a substantial construction challenge in the next eight years. Under the current building practices, the entire Dutch construction (housing, utilities and infrastructure) sector will exceed its allocated 1.5°C CO2-budget by 2026. Immediate measures are needed to reduce the sector’s CO2-impact. In this research, we showcase the overarching reduction potential of different circular strategies within the three major construction sectors (housing, utility building and infrastructure).
