The built environment is responsible for 38% of all energy-related carbon emissions generated across the globe and that is a sobering statistic.
We are taking an even stronger stand to support more-significant carbon reduction and combat the climate crisis.
With the mindset of bettering our firm, and our industry as a whole, we are pursuing more sustainable design and construction practices through our Embodied Carbon Reduction Guide.
To create this robust Guide, we partnered with Magnusson Klemencic Associates (MKA), an award-winning structural and civil engineering firm, who share our views and are pioneering research and engaging with low-carbon construction advocacy.
This suite of materials can be used to educate our partners, investors, tenants, development management clients, design teams, contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers and employees of the importance of reducing embodied carbon. We believe over time this approach will become an industry standard, driving materials suppliers to do better.
Simplifying the solution to a very complex issue and sharing it industry-wide will be key to affecting lasting change across the state and reducing the almost 40% of global energy-related carbon emissions generated by the CRE industry.
