How can a bitumen supplier contribute to more sustainable roads?

Since the UN commission Brundtland in 1987, sustainable development  is described as : “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."

This principle is based on three pillars :economical, ecological and social interests.
Also in modern road constructing, the question for more sustainable solutions is asked every day.

In this paper, we see how Nynas as a bitumen supplier can contribute to the questions related to these pillars  by offering specific product and solutions.
