TOP 50 BUILDING POLICY RESOURCES

Our vision is for all cities to have access to high-quality, cutting edge, curated evidence, best practices, insights and policy exemplars to support the decarbonisation of the building sector in line with the Paris Agreement.
To create tailored solutions that meet their local needs, policymakers and practitioners need to evaluate and prioritise a broad range of resources available on building efficiency. However, with so many resources available and not all of equivalent quality, this is a daunting challenge.
The Global Buildings Performance Network (GBPN) and a coalition of global cities networks and building sector policy think tanks have come together to create a sustainable buildings policy evidence base with the support of the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF).
The  coalition has curated some of the world’s best resources in the following categories:

Residential Renovations

Commercial Renevations

New Green Buildings
