CO2 emissions savings as high as 5.8 billion tonnes by 2050 WorldWide
Buildings are the biggest opportunity to reduce carbon for cities. A study by the International Energy Agency (IEA) shows that, if implemented globally, energy efficiency measures in the building sector could deliver CO2 emissions savings as high as 5.8 billion tonnes (Gt) by 2050, lowering greenhouse gas emissions by 83 percent below the business-as-usual scenario.
Most of these technologies are commercially available today and many of them deliver positive financial returns within relatively short payback periods. Read More
BetterWorldConstructions Green Architecture and Urban Development
BetterWorldSolutions intents to start a new platform BetterWorldConstructions connecting regional and national networks of sustainable builders.
The focus will be on CO2-reductions in the construction sector.
Low Carbon Constructions
We have chosen to change Circular Infrastructure into Low Carbon Constructions. Why? Because there are a lot of advantages to transform our build environment using biobased building materials, low carbon concrete, recycled products to a completely circular economy.
millions of tons of emissions
it prevents the shortage of raw materials
the good air quality (indoor and outdoor) improves health
100% recycling possible so its completely circular
An atlas of pollution: the world in carbon dioxide emissions
Worldwide, the cement sector has been very active in reducing its emissions from cement production.
On three levels:
Through the combination of these efforts, the emissions per ton of cement have been reduced by 16% from the 1990 levels of 750 kg CO2/ ton of cement. Good news for CO2 emissions, the greenhouse gas and climate change. Read More
