WHY DO WE NEED TO BUILD BETTER NOW?

Globally, CO2 emissions from the building sector are the highest ever recorded, with buildings and construction responsible for 38% of total global energy-related CO2 emissions. If we are to tackle these carbon emissions and limit temperature increases to 1.5°C, the built environment industry, governments and public must act now to identify and deliver climate solutions at scale. Learn more about what needs to be done at buildingtocop.org.

Build Better Now is an immersive virtual reality exhibition showcasing inspiring, global ideas for a more sustainable built environment. The associated events programme brings together international speakers to examine the challenges we face and the opportunities for transformation within our buildings, cities and infrastructure.
