2022-06-30
Region of Activities: South America
Type: Roadmap
Origin: Colombia GBC, WRI, UNEP, GEF

The National Roadmap for Net-Zero Carbon Buildings in Colombia establishes short, medium and long-term actions for the entire construction sector chain: urban planning, materials, transportation and distribution, design, labeling, certification, water and energy use, and waste management. It is a document that becomes a reference framework with goals and actions to be implemented in this sector to contribute to carbon neutrality, an aspiration set for the year 2050 by the National Government through the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development.

This roadmap was financed with a budget from the Global Environment Facility (GEF), in alliance with the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), under the leadership of the Sustainable Construction Council and the Minambiente, with the participation of the advisory committee of the Minvivienda, the National Planning Department (DNP), Minenergía, Camacol and the Planning Secretariats of Cali and Bogota.
