By any measure, the built environment represents a significant part of the climate change problem. Given that global construction and its associated materials are responsible for more than 55% of global carbon emissions, it will also need to be a major part of the solution.
According to the World Green Building Council, if the sector is to play its part and help limit global warming to 1.5°C, by 2030 all new buildings, infrastructure and renovations will need to be completed with at least 40% less embodied carbon compared to business as usual; and by 2050 they will need to be completed with net-zero embodied carbon.
