We can reduce the emission of gases in the construction industry by applying the following steps;
1- By implementing smart and efficient materials which are more durable and cheap. Also, it causes less pollution while they are manufacturing in the factory.
2- Eliminating material waste on the design stage could decrease the emission of gases by 18% in the atmosphere.
3- Finding alternative material to the cement and steel in the construction industry for the construction of buildings and other structures because only cement contributes 32% of all the emissions in the world from material consumption.
4- Giving subsidies and tax-exemption for those eco-friendly buildings which are environment-friendly and sustainable use materials like bamboo are used.
5- Reusing building material and waste in a creative way to build new houses and flats is a step which also helps in the reduction of global gases.
