The construction industry accounts for around one-tenth of the world's Gross Domestic Product, seven percent of employment, half of all resource usage and up to 40 percent of energy consumption. This industry has a profound impact on our daily lives: the buildings we live and work in, the roads and bridges we drive on, the utility distributions systems we use, the railways, airports and harbours we travel and trade from are all products of this vital industry.
The construction industry is also a key indicator and driver of economic activity and wealth creation. But, the industry's future prosperity will depend on its capacity to evolve on business, technological and environmental fronts.
