GECA supports built environment sector reaching net zero carbon emissions by 2050

GECA is a signatory to the World Green Building Council’s (WorldGBC) bold new vision for how buildings and infrastructure around the world can reach 40 per cent less embodied carbon emissions by 2030, and achieve 100 per cent net zero emissions buildings by 2050.
Together, building and construction are responsible for 39 per cent of all carbon emissions in the world. The emissions released during the manufacturing, transportation, construction and end of life phases of all built assets, commonly referred to asembodied carbon, have historically been overlooked despite contributing around 11 per cent of all global carbon emissions.
“Our new report is a solution-focused response to the urgent need to significantly reduce upfront emissions in buildings and construction and demand action across carbon intensive industries and materials,” said Cristina Gamboa, WorldGBC CEO. Achieving drastic cuts in all carbon emissions over the next decade is critical to keeping global temperature rise to 1.5?. Therefore, addressing embodied carbon is crucial to fighting the climate crisis. TheBringing Embodied Carbon Upfrontreport is a call to action to fully decarbonise the built environment sector by eliminating both operational and embodied carbon emissions.
The WorldGBC report presents a clear pathway of actions that designers, investors, manufacturers, government, NGOs and researchers across the whole value chain can take to accelerate decarbonisation, address current...
