Close to 100 businesses have signed up to the World Green Building Council's Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment, vowing to make all of their buildings carbon emission free by the year 2030. 

The companies to have signed the Commitment will now have to work in order to make all the buildings they own or develop, generate zero carbon emissions by 2030, giving them a time-frame of just under 10 years.  

62 of the signatories are businesses and organisations, who, collectively, are expected to spare 3.3 million tonnes of carbon emissions from entering the environment. Making up the rest, 28 cities and six states and regions have also signed the commitment, which was also help bring the amount of emissions entering the earth's atmosphere down significantly. 

CEO of the World Green Building Council, Cristina Gamboa, said: 

“Buildings are our planet’s largest consumers of energy. Measures to reduce consumption and energy waste in buildings offer the fastest way to unlock carbon savings, but they are often overlooked and prioritised."

“As we overcome the immediate and long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we must prioritise resilience. Net zero building can benefit people, economies and the planet and must form a part of the bold and decisive action necessary to tackle the climate emergency.”
