  • Green building is a solution to mitigation of climate change
    Green building is a solution to mitigation of climate change. Energy efficient construction for new buildings, and renovation of existing buildings, can reduce the 40-50% of energy used for space and water heating in buildings. However ,if current inefficient building practices continue, buildings could account for 70% of CO2 emissions by 2050. Life cycle assessment (LCA), carbon-focused, building rating systems are “material neutral” but a green building assessment schemes without a scientific LCA basis underestimate the carbon intensity issue. Some countries have green building rating systems, and other countries are considering establishing them, but existing green building rating systems lack a LCA basis.
