Advancing Net Zero Status Report 2021

 

 

 

 

The Advancing Net Zero (ANZ) Status Report 2021 highlights leadership action from GBCs and the building and construction sector towards achieving total sector decarbonisation.

We showcase action from across our Green Building Council (GBC) network including the 27 GBCs participating in WorldGBC’s global Advancing Net Zero project, as well as signatories to the Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment (the Commitment).

The report includes:

  • Examples of leading GBC action, including a world map showing participation in the project and a timeline of milestones such as release dates for schemes and reports for the past year
  • Net Zero trends & innovation on legislative and technological levels, and a myth buster section that addresses common misconceptions about net nero buildings.
  • Inspiring success stories highlighting how Commitment signatories are embedding net zero buildings into their operations. 
  • A list of all current Commitment signatories, and a summary of highlights from the year.
  • An update on WorldGBC global advocacy efforts in relation to COP26 climate action agenda, contributions to deliver COP26 programme, and how the building and construction sector can join the Race to Zero. 
  • A feature piece on how the Scottish Government is delivering their Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment, highlighting strategic goals and leading actions towards COP26 and beyond.
  • Editorials from three GBCs on leadership in their markets: Hong Kong, Norway, and New Zealand.
  • Thought pieces and examples of initiatives, projects and programmes from our partners covering the increasing value proposition for net zero.
