- Building from existing policies and commitments, countries can extend the ambition of building sector actions by:
Increasing the scope of existing building energy regulations to include a greater proportion of building types, particularly housing, and to renovation projects;
Increasing energy performance standards for building envelopes, heating, cooling and ventilation systems, and appliances;
Integrate building sector actions with urban land-use planning to enable the decarbonisation opportunities of sustainable mobility choices, reducing urban heat-island effects, and providing scalefor integration of distributed renewable energy supply.
