The International Energy Agency (IEA) is embarking in a project to analyse material efficiency strategies and material use trends in different sectors of the economy. The project aims at studying the demand of key materials in the context of 2°C ambitions, as well as the resulting system-level impacts on energy demand and related CO2 emissions. To provide strategic insights to this analysis, the IEA is organising a full-day experts’ meeting on 9 March 2018 in Paris looking at material trends in the buildings sector.
This meeting will bring together leading experts on materials production and buildings construction to discuss future trends of materials use in buildings construction, and the adaptation strategies of materials manufacturers to new construction needs.
