“I want to believe that it is not too late, and I hope that we will succeed in engaging as many players as possible, all sectors combined, by encouraging them to change their practices to achieve the carbon neutrality desired by the EU. ‘by 2050 and why not, aim for the negative carbon impact.” says Laëtitia Boucher.
The construction sector being responsible for 1/3 of greenhouse gas emissions – construction materials representing almost half of CO2 emissions during the lifetime of a building – Laëtitia’s ambition is to work for more sharing of good practices between all players in the sector to reduce the carbon impact of the sector and thus limit global warming.
