COP26 Side event - Live from the green transition: Decarbonizing buildings and their construction


Time: 15.00-16.30 CET / 9.00-10.30 ET

Place: Online

As world leaders convene for the COP26 in Glasgow, this event zooms in on the unique opportunity that economic recovery and new national infrastructure plans create for fast-tracking the green transition. Buildings and their construction are tough sectors to decarbonize, but we need them more than ever to get ready for the green transition. The good news is there is a lot we can do for these sectors with energy efficiency technologies available today.

We are bringing key stakeholders from business and government to the table to discuss opportunities and challenges:

- What concrete measures can we take to make our cities more energy efficient?

- What would an ideal policy framework look like to accelerate the adoption of truly sustainable technologies in existing and new building stock?

- How can we make construction sites more sustainable and reduce CO2 emissions?

- Proved cases showing benefits of greening buildings and construction

In other words: Let’s utilize the potential in infrastructure to kickstart the green transition.
