Busting a myth: sustainability increases construction costs

Geoplast, New Elevetor, Greenway, Milan

It is a myth that sustainable solutions increase building expenses and can only yield savings later. Our Sustainable Profitability approach proves the opposite – using sustainable solutions decreases construction costs and accelerates building time.

Below is an example table of construction project savings:
