What Makes Asian Green Buildings Market Different | Holcim | Michael Scharpf

Michael Scharpf explains what makes Asian green buildings special compared to other green building markets in the other regions.

Asian market is stringent in terms of the actual benefits of a green building, so addressing the right sustainable solutions in this region is a way to advance the innovative market strategies. Asian green building market is also different in terms of the required technical solutions for sustainability, skill set, innovation, architectural design, etc as the green standardization generally depends on the climate condition in every region. Michael also remarks that in the next future, the embedded energy or impact of the construction materials will get a far higher spotlight than it does now.

Michael Scharpf is the Head of Sustainable Construction and Green Labels at Holcim.
