To meet global demand for new buildings over the next 20 years, we'll need to build an equivalent of adding one New York City every month. If addressed by traditional materials, buildings will increase from 11% to 20% of our embodied carbon footprint.
Strawcture develops low carbon building materials using natural fibers that sequester carbon and are 40% more insulating than synthetics.
