How Construction Projects Can Achieve Zero Waste and Net-Zero Goals While Saving Resources
Businesses must start changing their practices now to embrace sustainability and environmental considerations. This behavioral shift also includes adopting net-zero goals in addition to zero waste practices for construction and demolition (C&D) materials. In particular, the construction industry has a very large carbon footprint and consumes a lot of resources. Fortunately, some key companies have developed innovative sustainability methods to handle this type of problem. Read this whitepaper to learn how those in the construction industry can change their thinking around carbon footprints, and reduce and recycle construction materials more effectively.
The Sustainable Multifamily Housing Opportunity
As Runberg Architecture Group, Ecotope, and Vulcan Real Estate collaborated on three successive multifamily projects in Seattle, they developed and refined an “off-the-shelf,” highly-replicable approach to creating high-performing multifamily buildings using existing energy-saving technology.
Learn why this approach has value-add for developers, creates healthier buildings for tenants, and is environmentally-friendly with low energy and water usage rates that are future-proof for code cycle changes.

Carbon in Buildings: Material Embodied vs. Operations Generated
When it comes to reaching ambitious goals for building sustainability and resilience, our industry’s focus often centers on improvements related to embodied carbon – how we minimize emissions in the manufacturing, production, and transport of the materials used in a building. However, over the long service life of a building, there are also significant opportunities to reduce operational carbon by increasing energy efficiency in ways that are commonly overlooked during the initial building phase.
