The building sector is responsible for nearly half of annual global carbon dioxide emissions and therefore reducing carbon emissions has become the trend for future buildings. Carbon emissions from buildings and construction projects are sourced from both operational emissions; largely due to the energy used in operating the building throughout its life and; embodied emissions, by and large, attributable to the energy used for the extraction, processing, manufacturing, and delivery of building and construction materials to the project site.
Despite the fact that the transition to a low-carbon economy is gaining momentum, there is still a great deal of work to be achieved. Decarbonisation involves significant commitment from everyone. It requires a transformational shift in the way we operate; from sourcing, using, consuming, and thinking about energy. It also requires a substantial financial commitment from investors and governments.
