Accelerating Building Efficiency: Actions for Urban Leaders

This week the World Resources Institute released Accelerating Building Efficiency: Eight Actions for Urban Leaders, a practical guide for which I acted as lead author and editor.

The 160 page report enables decision makers to improve the efficiency of buildings in their cities. With buildings responsible for 32 percent of global energy consumption and a quarter of CO2 emissions, there is a huge, under-tapped opportunity to create more sustainable cities through building efficiency. More efficient buildings can generate economic benefits, reduce environmental impacts and improve people’s quality of life.

Developed with a range of well-known partners, the report offers practical advice for city leaders, including eight clear and specific recommendations to unlock building efficiency. It presents a politically smart, common-sense approach that will help usher in a new era of better buildings suited for the 21st century.
