Construction industry could be next victim of climate change

Traditional building designs and techniques will not cut it in the future and the industry needs to wake up to its dual role in helping people cope with the unavoidable effects of climate change whilst making more efficient buildings to aid efforts to prevent things getting worse.

Changes in the way we build, produce energy and make technology more efficient must go hand-in-hand with the changes in behaviour and life style needed if we are to not only survive climate change, but thrive.
