Combining quantitative interviews among 600 business decision-makers and 24 in-depth qualitative interviews with sustainability leaders in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) and manufacturing industries, the report also explores the new areas of digital sustainability being pursued in the path towards net zero. The research includes the UK & Ireland, Nordics (Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Iceland), and Benelux Regions.

The benefits of adopting sustainable practices had two clear winners. This included a better use of resources (less waste) for the AEC sector (70%) and even higher (73%) in manufacturing, followed by reduced energy consumption (64%) for AEC and 74% for manufacturing. Half of AEC respondents also believe sustainable practices improve project quality. These findings indicate that the use of renewable energy, better material choices and circularity approaches could lower the environmental impact of projects or products.
