How 3D printing and CO₂-negative materials are shaping the future of the construction industry and enabling new business models.

Why now?


The construction industry is responsible for 27% of global CO₂ emissions.


The EU aims to be climate neutral by 2050.


Climate Tech is the fastest growing industry in Europe.


Climate & Green Tech have the greatest influence on the construction industry in the short term.

The dilemma

Plenty of innovation but little punch

The construction industry is facing a major and profound change. Due to the climate crisis and the EU's climate targets, the industry is forced to act. At a time when orders are slumping and the industry is suffering from a skills shortage, it's a challenging mix. 

New technologies and construction methods are popping up at every corner but are not finding their way into construction operations. Yet it is precisely these innovations that are enabling new and promising business models for the construction industry. In our trend paper, we take a look into the future, highlight promising developments and show how they can be applied in the future.
