Partnering with a Constructor for Action on Existing Building Decarbonization Pathways

I have a Net Zero Report, now what? It’s been 2 years and I don’t know where to start on implementing. I can’t get the business case approved. These are real issue that building owners are contending with when starting down a decarbonization pathway for their portfolios. Decarbonization at this scale and time horizon is unprecedented, so why should we think the old ways for retrofitting a building will work?

This session will explore how the right constructor partner can understand and define a pathway with specific projects to achieve decarbonization goals. A methodical approach to scoping retrofit projects, prioritizing based on lifecycles, and developing business cases with diverse financial tools to justify investment action. Best of all, the data feedback loop created by action informs decision making along the pathway, helping refined the approach and project designs as emission reductions are realized along the way. The volume of Net Zero existing building retrofits required to meet international commitments is unprecedented. It’s time to start thinking and actioning differently.
