As the reality that sustainability initiatives are gaining traction around world meets the assertion that commercial and residential buildings are responsible for 40% of the world’s carbon emissions, the Built World is increasingly understanding that sustainability considerations are going to have a profound impact on the industry. During our upcoming Buildings Conference, we are devoting an entire day’s worth of discussion to smart sustainability and how emerging technology is influencing Building Products, Materials and Systems and how those changes and other aspects of emerging technology are impacting the Operations and Maintenance of Buildings.
On April 7, at 9:00 am US Central Time, Kyle Bolden, a Partner at EY, will be part of a panel kicking off Day Two of the BuiltWorlds Buildings Conference that will help define exactly what makes a smart and sustainable building and the underlying dynamics that impact or accelerate the progress of these concepts and their adoption.
In light of that, and as part of their Megatrends series of reports, BuiltWorlds Network Member, EY, recently shared with us an interesting article on how business leaders can flip the script on carbon by capturing it and turning it into a source of commercial and long-term value.
