Climate change is the greatest challenge facing our planet.
Before COVID-19, the global community committed to bold action. The pandemic shook the world, but the climate change emergency hasn’t gone away.
Significantly though, many view the pandemic as an opportunity to reset and assess the impact we are having on the planet, and speculate that the COVID-19 recovery could in fact be a green one.
The built environment has a critical role to play. With a quarter of all CO2 emissions coming from buildings, the global community needs to reduce building energy consumption by over 80% if we are to reach zero-carbon targets.
If we are to chart a sustainable future, first we need to understand where we are now.
