World Economic Forum's Construction Innovation Initiative

WEF (World Economic Forum) has a Future of Construction Initiative. The effort by WEF is supported by BCG (Boston Consulting Group) which is a competitor of McKinsey who I mentioned in this post.

The WEF has of course economic data.

As an industry, moreover, it accounts for 6% of global GDP. It is also the largest global consumer of raw materials, and constructed objects account for 25-40% of the world’s total carbon emissions.

There are a long list of people contributing to the effort. here is one page.

So is this the answer to changing the construction industry? I think the effort is helpful, but not the answer.
