Whole Life Carbon Approach

Friday 25 Sept | 9am – 11.30am | Online Workshop | IGBC Members only

Buildings’ construction and operations account for 39% of energy-related CO2 emissions globally. While the 28% of global emissions from operational emissions in buildings is being tackled, the 11% related to other life cycle emissions from the sector (product manufacture, construction etc.), is rising. In this context, the IGBC is organising a high-level workshop to identify which actions are needed this year, but also within 5 or 10 years to fully decarbonise our built environment across its life cycle. This is a members-only event. This event is supported by the Environmental Protection Agency BOOK HERE
