Net zero is at the top of corporate agendas, in the front of consumers’ minds, and a consistent theme of legislation, regulations, and government funding around the globe. The architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry and its customers have a huge impact on emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), one of the most important greenhouse gases. It accounts for about 50% of the total global use of raw materials and 36% of final energy use. Looked at like that, few industries are feeling the pressure to reduce carbon emissions like AEC. 

This e-book identifies the drivers, gaps, and opportunities for AEC to achieve more sustainable outcomes, with the ultimate goal of a more resilient, sustainable and equitable built environment in the future.
