“Scientists are clear on climate change: we have 10 years to act. For a real estate company, ten years is one or two project lives; in politics, for a mayor, less than two mandates. We have therefore no time to lose. The built environment sector must change now, quickly and radically”- Hélène Chartier, head of zero carbon development, C40, talking at the MIPIM Urban Forum 2020
The message is out. The race is on. The real estate industry has a key role to play given that buildings are among the world’s biggest emitters of carbon dioxide (CO2), the most harmful of greenhouse gases (GHG).
Decarbonising the built environment is an enormous task, but failing to take this on will result in even greater risks – not least with regards to the wellbeing of future generations and of the planet.
In The Race to Carbon Zero, we:
– Look at the issues behind decarbonising the built environment
– Listen to the voices and approaches of key players across the industry, including Landsec, Prologis and City Developments Ltd.
– Talk with Nuveen Real Estate, an industry leader in sustainability, about how they benchmark carbon emissions.
