At the Business and Climate Summit in London, the World Green Buildings Council made an announcement about the launch of its new project that aims to make all buildings “net zero” – which generate renewable energy on-site and produce net zero carbon emissions – by 2050.

 

CEO of WorldGBC emphasized that to tackle climate change and keep global warming to within 1.5 to 2 degrees we need to advance net zero buildings. She also added: “Getting down to zero won’t be easy. This will be a long and challenging road but together with the dedication and expertise of our Green Building Councils and partners, we can create a thriving market for highly efficient buildings and make net zero the new normal.”

 

The Lead Partner to WorldGBC will be a non-profit organization Architecture 2030, which, together with other local and international organizations identified by the Green Building Councils, will share technical expertise with participants.
