Decarbonisation of the building stock by carbon requirement to buildings
November 8 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am EET
10:30 – 11:30 (EET)
Buildings is responsible for 36% of the global CO2 emissions and need to be reduced by 50% before 2030 if we want to meet the Paris agreement. Therefore, Nearly Zero Carbon buildings must become standard before 2030 and this is best done through regulations. More countries has already set requirement to maximum CO2 emissions from new buildings and the European Commission has suggested that all European countries sets requirement to maximum emissions from buildings. The session will discuss how carbon requirement to new build has been developed (by research) and how to implement them into building legislation (by CO2 requirements) as done in Denmark and other countries. The session will also discuss how the industry need to declare the carbon contend of products and solutions (Environmental Product Declarations) as well as how designers and architects use life cycle perspective and LCA calculations to guide investors in their decision process.
