Next generations require us to hand over buildings that provide clean air, clean water, protect the environment, help to manage waste, provide esthetic pleasure and physical comfort for a long time. They will hold us accountable too! Therefore sustainability becomes more and more a matter of risk management. How much risk do you take, socially and financially, by developing buildings that meet sustainability criteria insufficiently? This provides new challenges to developers of social real estate and with that obviously for suppliers of building materials. A challenge Descol gladly accepts ! We focus on implementing the consumption of renewable and recycled resources, limit our impact on climate change, avoid poluted waste water and development of solutions for efficient construction and maintenance of our infrastructure.
