Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center on Monday, September 20, from 11:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m. ET for a discussion on how real estate investors, innovators, owners, and operators can lead on carbon emissions reduction in the built environment, held on the sidelines of Climate Week.

The buildings and construction sector produces 40 percent of global carbon emissions. Urgent, coordinated, action from across the industry and from the policymakers will be necessary to dramatically change the way buildings are designed, built, used, and deconstructed to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 in the built environment. The real estate industry could drive much of this transformation across the buildings and construction value chain, particularly in the hard-to-decarbonize sectors.

The event will feature a high-level panel of business and technology leaders with a vision to revolutionize the real estate industry into an agent for positive environmental change. The panelists will share their perspectives on why investors need to think differently about the way they allocate capital and the unique benefits of investing in next generation climate technology designed to minimize carbon emissions and increase building efficiency.

Please join this conversation via the web application Zoom, which is accessible through your web browser, the Zoom desktop or mobile app, and by phone.
