Posted the 26th Oct. 2009 by Construction WEEK: Sustainability is not being taken seriously and is a race to the bottom, said experts on the sidelines of the Construction Week Building Sustainability into the Middle East Conference that was held on Sunday in Abu Dhabi. Speaking to Construction Week, Holly Chant, corporate sustainability director, KEO International said: “Most projects and building materials manufacturers in the region are using tools like Leed certification and the ‘green’ word to market themselves or their products. There is a lot of green washing going on in the construction industry.” “If one has to truly become sustainable, you have to incorporate green solutions right from the concept stage. You cannot ‘green wash’ your project in the construction stage and expect it to be sustainable.”
