Science-based Targets Driving the Transition to Sustainable Buildings

Wednesday May 15th, 2019 @ 13:00 CEST

Linked to Work Area 3 – Market Transformation

Science-based targets provide companies with a clearly defined pathway aligned with the Paris Agreement goals by specifying how much and how quickly they need to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.

More than 550 companies with trillions of dollars in revenue, including several property, construction, cement and steel firms have now joined the Science Based Targets initiative, aligning their emission reductions with the Paris Agreement.

This webinar will address questions like: How do Science-Based Targets advance a zero-emission, efficient, and resilient buildings and construction sector? What is the private sector’s role in aligning ambition and action along the whole value chain to achieve future-proof buildings? How can partnership between government and companies accelerate action on Paris Agreement targets? What are GlobalABC members contributions to and activities in science-based targets?

Future-Proof Buildings - sharing what works | A GlobalABC Webinar Series

This webinar series contributes to the GlobalABC vision that in a future-proof world all buildings, old and new, are zero-emission, efficient and resilient. Action in the buildings and construction sector is vital to achieve international ambition to stay below 1.5 degrees of warming. This series seeks to provide a space for best-practice exchange connecting governments, private sector and organisations to drive the transformation.

Through a moderated panel format, this webinar series will present various topics related to the transition to a sustainable buildings and construction sector. It will provide case studies, success stories, and information on innovations, advancements, challenges, and solutions available to drive the transformation, linked but not limited to the five GlobalABC Work Areas:

1. Awareness raising and education

2. Public Policies

3. Market Transformation

4. Finance

5. Building measurement, data, and information
