Research Brief: Mitigation Solutions for GHG Emissions in New Construction
By 2050, the United States is projected to add 121 billion ft2 of buildings—equivalent to constructing New York City every year for the next 20 years. However, to meet climate change goals the U.S. building sector must also significantly reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In this brief, we investigate which GHG mitigation solutions could help meet these GHG targets even as the nation experiences such unprecedented construction.
