Why we commissioned this report

Most business leaders agree that digital maturity is key to meeting today’s challenges whilst building a sustainable future. So, two questions remain: why does slow digital adoption persist, and how can digital and data help businesses meet sustainability goals?

By commissioning this research, we sought to answer these questions by unlocking a deeper understanding of the current state of play and the positive impacts of data, efficiency and sustainability.

Watch our short video as Causeway's Product Director, Rob Ramsay, explains why we believe this report has the potential to be a catalyst for discussion and drive positive change in the industry.

We wanted to better understand the reasons behind why the industry is still slow to adopt digitalisation, and what’s truly holding construction back. 

Working in partnership with research experts Vanson Bourne, we asked 175 decision makers and influencers across the construction industry for their insights and opinions on current digital and sustainability initiatives. 

We are also delighted to include expert commentary from EKFB, John Cradock Ltd and the Supply Chain Sustainability School in this report.
