Energy & carbon
How to build better?
Several strategies can be applied to reduce buildings' impact on energy consumption and carbon emissions, and they should all be considered when working on a new project.
Increase energy efficiency
To decrease the electricity consumption during the building's lifecycle and reduce the associated carbon emissions
Reduce embodied carbon emissions
To supplement the reduction of operational carbon
Increase the use of renewable energies
To supply the remaining energy need with reduced carbon emissions
Sequester atmospheric carbon
To ensure buildings have a positive impact on their environment.
