About

A third of the world’s energy goes to light, heat, and cool buildings.  Our hope of achieving the carbon emission targets in the Paris Agreement rests on reducing this consumption as soon as possible.  Working through an international network that includes Green Building Councils, city governments, businesses, and NGOs, the World Green Building Council through its partnership in the Building Efficiency Accelerator seeks to bring about transformational change in building practices. Support from P4G will enable Regional scale up of this work across the Americas, particularly Colombia and Mexico but also Argentina, Chile, Brasil, Guatemala, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Peru and Panama. This ambitious project is designed to provide cities with the tools they need to develop and implement energy-efficient building policies and programs to scale energy savings.
