A key energy consumer and responsible for almost 40% of CO2 emissions globally and ca. 50% of global resources extraction, the built environment is an economic powerhouse that we must transform to achieve the Paris Agreement Goals! With over half of all buildings standing in 2050 not yet built we have a narrow window of opportunity to get it right - now more than ever we must build back better. We have a responsibility and an opportunity to Race To Zero together!
Our dialogues focus on radical collaboration and on driving ambition by each actor along the value chain to enable each other to Race To Zero together. It will feature strategic approaches and tools which can drive sector transformation including our regional roadmaps.
Discuss with the CEOs of Saint-Gobain and Majid al Futtaim, the Minister of National Land Use Planning, Urban Planning, and Urban Policy of Morocco, UNEP's Excutive Director, the Chile and UK High-Level Climate Champions, and many more, on the responsibility to transform this essential sector, and on the enablers needed to make it happen!
