Buildings and community infrastructure are key elements in achieving carbon neutrality and creating resilient communities supportive of health and quality of life in the face of climate change. Achieving global climate goals will require deep emissions reductions across the built environment.Join the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) at the COP28 Buildings Pavilion as we introduce the U.S. Commercial Real Estate Market: State of Decarbonization 2023 report in partnership with Arup. This report is the first to bring together key data on this sector and the mechanisms for reducing buildings’ carbon emissions in one place, and it offers thought-provoking data on disparities in progress pointing to the need for place-based strategies_._Through dialogue, panelists will build on this report’s key findings to delve into drivers for buildings transformation, and identify effective policies and programs to help policymakers, advocates, and companies better understand the landscape and strategies to achieve the scale of action desperately needed. We will also showcase subnational actors leading the way to scale equitable climate solutions through modern building codes, building performance standards, above-code programs, and more.
