Improve your understanding of sustainable construction and development

Sustainable development meets the needs of the present by carrying out activities that do not compromise future generations’ ability to meet their own needs.

On this course, you’ll learn about the obligations and actions that play a role in the concept and practice of sustainability in construction and development.

You’ll explore the need for environmental, economic and social sustainability, and the implications for the construction industry.

You’ll learn best practices from successful sustainability initiatives, and understand the challenge of achieving sustainability in the future.

This course is for anyone interested in sustainable construction and development, but may be of particular interest to those working in or studying construction and the wider built environment.
