Shifting Paradigm for Net-Zero Construction
The construction sector is not only one of the most reliable engines for economic recovery, in the current COVID-19 context. It is also a formidable vector to continue advancing towards net-zero construction, including through an accelerated uptake of low carbon materials and solutions. Reaching the COP21 ambitions must remain a priority and the building and construction sector can effectively contribute to it. And this underlines a prerequisite: our ability to define what forms net-zero construction and how we measure the carbon footprint across the lifecycle of construction projects.
The panelists will provide different perspectives on some of the tools, market requirements and public policies that will help drive this agenda.
