Global Roadmap towards low-GHG and resilient buildings

Share this Post:


This Roadmap by the  Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction (GABC) aims to describe the main overarching goals, steps and agenda that the building sector as a whole could share, creating the framework of a common vision for low greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and resilient global real estate pathways.


In the context of the Paris Agreement and its implementation, the purpose of this Roadmap is to set up a collective framework for the building and construction sector in alignment with the climate related objectives set out in the Agreement, i.e. for the world to stay well below 2°C and to be carbon neutral in the second half of this century.


This document is by no means a prescriptive Roadmap for countries, but rather, a resource to support key decision makers at the national level when designing their building and climate strategies, policies and long or medium term plans, to align with, and support their local, subnational governments and key decision makers in the building and construction sector, to implement low-carbon, resilient urban development for economic, social and environmental enhancement. It aims to identify global goals and milestones and therefore does not replace detailed national Building and Construction Roadmaps, tailored to the unique context of the country. Flexibility is required as far as detailed implementation is concerned.
