Get to Net Zero: Don’t Forget Your Building Portfolio!
Did you know buildings make up over 15 percent of global CO2 emissions? Reducing the impact of your building portfolio can help you meet your emission reduction targets. Join this webinar to learn about IFC’s EDGE green building certification, an innovative solution that can help you transition your building portfolio to zero carbon.
The business world is under increasing pressure from customers and investors to take meaningful action on climate change. As companies set science-based targets and carbon neutrality targets, a logical place to focus on for emissions reductions is the company’s real estate stock.
The webinar will highlight how to quantify the carbon footprint of your entire building portfolio and develop a roadmap to reach zero carbon using the free EDGE App. You will also learn about the benefits of a green-certified portfolio, from attracting investment to facilitating sustainability reporting.
