Energy Efficiency in Buildings (EEB 2.0)
Description/achievement of initiative
Launch of a new phase of the WBCSD Energy Efficiency in Buildings Project (EEB 2.0)- a market engagement oriented project aiming to trigger action and implementation at scale.
Please nicely refer to the deliverables.
Over the course of a proposed three-year project, EEB 2.0 intends to work with key decision-makers who are responsible for, or have influence over, substantial building portfolios in the public and private sectors. Over the course of up to 10 selected engagements, the project will develop a replicable process for bringing key decision-makers and relevant stakeholders together to identify practicable energy efficiency solutions in the portfolios they control, and will serve to scale up the implementation process across other decision maker portfolios.
Our aim, through the visibility, success and replicability of our engagements, is to secure commitments from 1,000 decision-makers worldwide to cut energy use in their buildings progressively, by as much as 60% by 2050 with interim targets along the way. This demanding target was identified by EEB as essential to meet global energy security and climate change goals, especially considering the rapid growth of new buildings in developing countries and the low rate of replacement of inefficient buildings in developed regions.
