Springfield Steel Buildings and Sustainable Construction, Keeping you up to date on why steel construction is sustainable.
Buildings are responsible for almost half of the UK’s carbon emissions, half of its water consumption, around a third of its landfill waste and a quarter of all raw materials used in the economy. This means that the UK’s sustainable development targets cannot be met without a fundamental change to the way in which buildings are designed, constructed and operated.
National targets for greenhouse gas emission reductions and the drive for buildings that are ‘zero carbon’ in operation present a huge challenge to the construction industry – a challenge which the steel construction sector is playing a major part in overcoming.
Tata Steel, the major steel producer in the UK, recycles or reuses over 90% of its process residues.
Current recovery rates from demolition sites in the UK are 99% for structural steelwork and 96% (on average) for all steel construction products – figures that far exceed those for any other construction material.
