Why the World Economic Forum is Urging for AEC Innovation

The World Economic Forum is urging for innovation in the AEC industry, releasing two reports on the topic. “That moral obligation is what is driving the overall initiative, and those behind it are determined to push principles of sustainability and resilience, as well as the wide application of emerging technologies, all of which are now seen as essential pillars of productivity and efficiency.” writes BuiltwWorlds in an article on the WEF initiative. “Working in collaboration with the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), WEF also has launched an online ‘knowledge-sharing platform,’ Future of Construction, to make its research available to industry, owners and government agencies, and accessible for updates, ongoing analyses, and expert assistance for public and private visitors seeking process and/or policy solutions.”
