Zero-emission, efficient and resilient buildings and infrastructure are vital for developing an inclusive net-zero economy.

Companies are encouraged to accelerate the transition to net-zero built environment with one of the below initiatives:

Achieve net-zero carbon buildings with EP100

Energy-smart companies are doing more with less energy. Under Climate Group’s EP100 initiative, companies are improving their energy productivity to lower their emissions and improve their competitiveness, helping lower global energy demand and accelerate the clean energy transition.
