Another thing to bear in mind is that materials that last a lifetime are more environmentally friendly, because they do not become waste. For example, cement, stone and brick can last for generations. And of course, it is important to use materials that do not release toxins, which can put people’s health at risk.
On the other hand, the importance of renewable energies should be emphasised. The use of energy sources such as wind, hydroelectric and solar energy has a low environmental impact and makes it possible to create more efficient buildings that pollute less.
Its location and surroundings must also be taken into account.
