The built environment’s contribution to achieving zero global carbon emissions by 2040 is critical. Right now our buildings are responsible for approximately 40% of the world’s carbon emissions. And when accounting for the carbon embodied in all associated infrastructure, that figure is substantially higher.
Our industry is taking significant action to work within the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C limit above pre-industrial levels. By showing what is possible, the Built Environment Summit will embolden governments to do the same. Save the dates and become part of the positive impact.
