Radically transforming linear consumption into a circular sustainable model, across various value chains, throughout the lifecycle of the built environment and its operations, leading towards a 1.5°C pathway.
Decarbonization means a decrease in the specific amount of carbon (or CO2) emitted per unit of primary energy consumed. In a circular economy, products, components, and materials are designed to be restorative and regenerative and thereby keeping them at their highest utility and value at all times. This circularity approach improves on material efficiency, energy efficiency, reduction and elimination of waste that ultimately reduces the climate impacts and leads the way to a sustainable future. The transition to a low carbon, circular economy is crucial and will have far reaching social and economic impacts, eliminating energy poverty, ensuring adequate warmth, cooling, lighting, and the energy to power appliances for guaranteeing health and a decent standard of living for all.
In today’s race to zero by 2050, the building and construction industry will need to decarbonize 3x faster over the next 30 years versus the previous 30 as determined during the COP26 and we are all responsible to commit to achieving this target. To do so requires a cumulative effort across the built environment sector – our team of experts are ready to work hand in hand with you to calculate and determine the best strategy to achieve realistic targets within a limited timeframe.
