Adapteo releases sustainability report highlighting commitment to adaptable and circular social infrastructure
Adapteo Group, a leading provider of adaptable social infrastructure across Europe, has released its latest sustainability report, showcasing its ongoing efforts to tackle environmental challenges through the use of flexible and reusable building solutions.
The need for adaptable buildings is growing across Europe, as demographic and city planning challenges increase the demand for flexible and reusable social infrastructure, such as education, healthcare, childcare and elderly care. The construction industry generates 40 percent of the global carbon footprint and two-fifths of all waste, making it essential to consider adaptable building solutions to reduce environmental impact.
Adapteo is leading the way, providing adaptable and reusable social infrastructure across Europe, including 775 schools, 377 daycare centres, and 71 hospitals. In total, the company provides 1.4 million square meters of space for learning, care and accommodation. Widespread use of flexible buildings with zero groundwork would drastically reduce the construction industry's carbon footprint.
“Sustainability can't be an add-on, it has to be at the core of the business model. I believe the only way to tackle the climate crisis and meet the EU's Circular Economy Action Plan is to rethink city planning and bring flexibility and circularity to the forefront”, said Lina K Wiles, Chief Sustainability Officer at Adapteo.
Adapteo's latest sustainability report highlights the company's commitment to sustainability, as well as its ongoing efforts to reduce its environmental impact with adaptable and reusable building solutions.
Key highlights in the 2022 report:
