International. The Global Status Report 2017 of the United Nations (UN) indicated that the buildings and construction together represent the 36% of the global final energy use and the 39% of the carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) related to the energy when upstream power generation is included.

The energy intensity per square meter (m2) of the global buildings sector should improve on average by 30% for 2030 (compared to 2015) to be on track to meet the global climate ambitions set out in the Paris Agreement.

This 2017 Global Status Report reconfirms the importance of buildings and the construction sector in global energy consumption and related emissions. It also shows that the efforts to decarbonize the sector are progressing, thanks to the implementation of comprehensive policy frameworks, the deployment of low carbon and energy technologies, better approaches and solutions for building design and an investment market in improvement.

The report explains that while the pace and scale of improvement is not yet sufficient to meet global climate ambitions, the notable examples highlighted in this report show that even greater effort can be made to achieve these objectives, while at the same time they present multiple positive economic, social, environmental and health benefits.

The report says that it is necessary to take advantage of the full potential of the global construction and construction sector, from policies, technology and financing tools to greater international cooperation, greater education and awareness, and better training and capacity building throughout the world. the value chain of buildings.

This 2017 world state document was prepared by the International Energy Agency (IEA) for the Global Alliance for Building and Construction (GABC). The GABC aims to bring together the construction and construction industry, countries and stakeholders to raise awareness and facilitate the global transition towards buildings with low energy consumption and low emissions consumption.
