For many years now, sustainability is a key topic for both the B2C and B2B markets in the construction & home improvement industry. However, deliberations are over, as new rules and regulations drive the construction and home improvement market to more sustainability. One of the key conclusions of the Q1 2021 Home Improvement Monitor is that consumers are still very much driven by saving money when it comes to improving the sustainability of their homes. About 27% of European consumers mention this as their number one reason to improve their homes. Protecting the environment (17%) and making their homes more comfortable (14%) are the number 2 and 3 reasons. Subsidies take fourth place, with 8% of the consumers mentioning this as their number 1 reason.

What products are they interested in, and what do they expect to improve on their homes in the next 12 months? What are the key drivers and barriers?
