The development of waste, the consumption of resources, and the practices of labor all have an impact on the built environment's potential to be sustainable over time. The sector affects almost all UN SDGs directly or indirectly (SDGs).
Our current policies and programmes need to be broadened to meet the Sustainable Development Goals, therefore we need to push the built sector, investors, commissions, land users, and built infrastructure to tag along," the statement said.
