For the companies of construction materials, the incorporation of waste in the so-called "traditional materials" is an alternative in line with the target set by the WFD. The use of secondary materials, covering both the study and the development of their properties, is one of the most important factors towards circular economy model and thus zero waste in construction [8]. In the construction sector this is not an exception and these opportunities should be seized by proposing recycled, recyclable and durable materials. Likewise, it should have a classification of any company, depending on the use of resources, energy and waste in its manufacturing or work process. Something similar to what is done in buildings and from which we obtain an energy label (A-B-C-D-E-F). Unifying these criteria, companies would try to improve in these aspects in order to be in the market. In this way, society could consider that construction contributes to the sustainability of the planet because it adapts and is respectful with its environment, saves resources, minimizes waste and overall takes into account the future of society itself.
