Bussinesses and organisations commit to making their buildings net zero by 2030

Nearly 100 businesses and organisations worldwide have made a commitment to make their buildings net zero by 2030.

The World Green Building Council has seen a great deal of new members sign up to its Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment. This commitment works to ensure that all buildings the members own, occupy or develop will generate net zero carbon emission by 2030 at the latest.

The businesses included within this deal encompass a wide range of sectors such as insurance, retail, real estate and education.

In addition to this, the group is predicted to cut 3.3 million tonnes of carbon emissions.

Cristina Gamboa, CEO of the World Green Building Council, added:

“Buildings are our planet’s largest consumers of energy. Measures to reduce consumption and energy waste in buildings offer the fastest way to unlock carbon savings, but they are often overlooked and prioritised. As we overcome the immediate and long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we must prioritise resilience. Net zero building can benefit people, economies and the planet and must form a part of the bold and decisive action necessary to tackle the climate emergency.”
