Carbon Smart Building Day provided concrete steps that governments, corporations, organizations and individuals can take to lead the industry transformation necessary to realize our vision of a Net Zero Carbon (NZC) built environment.:
New Buildings – Operations and Embodied Emissions. All new buildings and developments are NZC by 2030, with increase in carbon-storing material use.
Existing Buildings – Operations and Embodied Emissions. Extend building lifespan to 100 + years and retrofit existing buildings to NZC operations by 2050.
Health and Equity. All new building (material production, construction, and use) is healthy, equitable and just.
