Green design takes the stage at international climate talks
from Architectural Record
In December, world leaders came to Paris with an ambitious task: cut global carbon emissions to prevent the worst of climate change. The growing awareness of buildings' role in climate change was evident in nearly a quarter of the voluntary climate plans prepared by countries attending the summit. Host country France, the United Nations Environment Programme, World Green Building Council, Architecture 2030, and other bodies organized an official Buildings Day that served as a launch pad for a series of novel initiatives, including a new Global Alliance for Green Building and Construction.
