This publication outlines the factors that need to be considered when choosing materials for sustainable construction. There are no simple solutions that suggest one material is better in all circumstances than another. The required performance and durability of a material, its integration with other materials and the building's overall performance and lifetime all need to be considered.
This publication covers subjects such as life cycle assessment, choosing materials, ease of construction/installation and datasheets for interior and exterior materials.
