Sustainability in Buildings

Sustainability in Buildings

On July 28, 2020, eighty leaders joined us for our virtual conversation on Sustainability in Buildings. The majority of our carbon emissions come from energy use in our buildings.

With help from a team of experts, we explored how we can speed up the transformation of our built environment and move toward a future where every building addresses climate change, contributes to its neighborhood, and provides a safe environment for its occupants.
