In the wake of COP26, net-zero commitments are on everyone’s minds. Were the commitments enough? Was it a fossil fuel giveaway? Were governments too weak? Importantly, what are companies doing and what should they do to make a meaningful impact in the race to net-zero?
The built environment is a large contributor to climate change with buildings responsible for almost 40% of global carbon-related emissions. The Building to COP Coalition is urging countries to adopt full building decarbonisation targets, with cities committed to net zero, and 100% of new buildings net-zero in operation by 2030, and embodied carbon reduced by at least 40%, and by 2050, all new and existing assets to be net zero across the whole lifecycle.
