The Building has a secret: it has the power to become a climate hero! (Alliance HQE-GBC Congress)

(Simultaneous English-French translation will be provided during the session)


The construction sector is responsible at the global level for greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to the ones of China. This is why it needs to go for “net zero carbon” in order to maintain global warming below 2°C, the limit set by the Paris Agreement.

Companies, governments and NGOs hold the key to transform a world where there are a few thousand net zero buildings into a world of billion net zero buildings.

New buildings and the existing stock are impacted by this transition to improve their environmental performance but also the resilience in terms of climate change adaptation. What is the maturity level of this environmental transition in different countries? Can action principles be found? What is the French momentum ?
