Advancing Construction Decarbonization Conference


The clock is ticking to minimize greenhouse gases. With buildings producing 39% of CO2 emissions globally (28% in operational emissions and 11% in building materials and construction), customers, investors and regulatory professionals are now demanding construction firms rethink their approach to sustainability.

The building industry causes 14 gigatons of greenhouse gas emissions every year, according to the report, which is called “Net-zero buildings: where do we stand?”. Reducing carbon emissions in buildings is very important to achieve the climate goals and net zero emissions.

Developing buildings’ sustainability is not easy: from reducing
embodied carbon in materials, electrifying fleet, and decreasing
onsite waste, to establishing a decarbonization strategy,
and tracking and reporting sustainability initiatives.

The Advancing Construction Decarbonization conference will gather over 100 Sustainability and Project Leaders from contracting firms across Morocco to solve and advance these carbon reduction improvements.

Make sure you join us to join us in this amazing journey to being a leader in the race to decarbonize.
