Making our buildings more energy efficient and reliable

Built Environment

This is some text inside of a div block.

Buildings — where we live, work, dine, and reside. They’re the very foundation of nearly everything we do, no wonder they're a major culprit for greenhouse gasses — both in their construction and ongoing use.

According to Project Drawdown, the built environment sector accounts for roughly 6% of global greenhouse gas emissions each year.

The challenges in this sector are threefold — we must address refrigerants, shift our energy sources, and create more energy-efficient solutions. We can significantly reduce building emissions through improvements to energy optimization, retrofits to existing buildings, replacing fossil fuel energy sources, and doing away with polluting refrigerants.
