Overview

Climate proofing buildings must be at the core of our efforts and “green buildings” are vital in this process. A green building is a building that greatly reduces its negative impact on our climate and natural environment and it does so throughout the life cycle. Unfortunately, current green building renovation and practices are far below the Paris Agreement targets and most of these efforts are not cost-optimal. It is essential to overcome these challenges and drive further investment into green buildings.

Key learning objectives:

  • Understand what are green buildings

  • Understand the importance of green buildings

  • Identify the barriers to investing in green buildings
