2030 is Today – how we can act NOW to halve built environment emissions by 2030
November 16 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm EET
13:30 – 16:30 (EET)
The building and construction sector is responsible for approx. 40% of the global energy related carbon emissions. To achieve a net zero built environment no later than 2050, we need to halve current emissions, from 14Gt to 7Gt per year by 2030. This requires having a systemic approach to reduce the entire whole life carbon emissions, by strongly reducing operational and embodied carbon emissions.
What does this mean, how can it be done in practice and who is doing it?
This thematic session will provide an overview of leading initiatives and leaders, provide clarity on terminologies, demonstrate the actions beyond the ambitions, showcasing implementable solutions and provide clear indication of ways forward.
We need to start building now what we need for 2030. 2030 is Today.
