Mission: The mission of the Center for Construction and Environment is to foster the implementation of sustainability principles into the creation of the built environment internationally. This includes insuring resources such as energy, water, materials, and land are utilized efficiently and that renewable and recyclable resources are emphasized. Protection of the Environment during construction and during production of construction materials is a parallel requirement for sustainable construction.
