The financial sector plays a crucial role in transforming the built environment into net-zero carbon. Investors and financial institutions are recognizing their significant influence and responsibility for reaching the climate targets of the Paris Agreement in the built environment. However, the “financed emissions” from buildings, covering both operations and embodied carbon from construction, have so far not been adequately managed, accounted for or reported.
The Programme for Energy Efficiency in Buildings (PEEB) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) invite for a discussion with doers and thinkers from across the buildings sector value chain on how to shift financial investments towards green buildings.
