Drawdown Decade: Climate Action Commitments in the Building Industry
Date & Time
Monday, September 13, 2021, 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Virtual Session Link

As of 2021, we know that operation and construction of buildings are responsible for nearly 40 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. Although the building industry continues to work toward reducing our impact, we need to do more, and faster, in order to mitigate the worst damage caused by climate change. This session will daylight recently-announced climate action commitments within the building industry. The discussion will weave a connecting thread between firm-level commitments such as Miller Hull's EMission Zero, industry-wide campaigns, and global initiatives such as the Science-Based Target Initiative. This session will conclude with an outlook towards integrating these pathways to take climate action. Session attendees will take away strategies for developing their own initiatives, in application to their own firms and projects.
