Comment

We can't meet our climate action goals without addressing existing buidlings.

Reusing and upgrading existing buildings presents a huge opportunity to reduce both embodied and operational emissions. Reusing Buildings and Materials, particularly when it reuses the building structure and envelope, reduces embodied emissions by 50 to 75% compared to a new replacement building

Upgrading and Electrifying our existing building stock is an effective way to drive down operational emissions quickly.

We know how to do this and we know it is less expensive than building new buildings.
