Technical Report: "Decarbonization Policies in the Buildings and Construction Sector"

Report / 01-06-2020 / Global / English
Authors: Peter Graham

“Adopting Decarbonization Policies in the Buildings and Construction Sector” provides a review of the evidence of the impact of implementing cost-effective policy measures to reduce the carbon footprint of the buildings and construction sector. Written by Peter Graham, Executive Director of the Global Buildings Performance Network (GBPN), the report reflects on the most important measures that policymakers at all jurisdiction levels should consider when planning building climate actions that can deliver the most economic impact and emissions savings over the long-term.

Technical Report: A GUIDE FOR INCORPORATING BUILDINGS ACTIONS IN NDCS

The buildings sector contributes nearly 40% to global energy-related annual GHG emissions (IEA/UNEP, 2018). Final energy demand from buildings is predicted to increase 50% by 2050 compared with 2015 levels under business as usual scenarios due to rapid urbanisation and the doubling of the built surface area. Effective decarbonization of the buildings sector is therefore critical to meeting the Paris Agreement Goals and exceeding the current level of ambition in Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
