Financing net zero carbon buildings

This paper is the output of an exercise that aims to build the foundation for future work by the Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance (the Alliance) through a structured approach to analyze the challenges and priorities relevant to cities in decarbonizing the buildings sector. It is not an exhaustive study of zero carbon buildings, but rather a guide for future alliance work and exercise to build in-house knowledge. Buildings contribute 37% of global energy-related CO2 emissions. Nine percent of emissions are from on-site energy generation, 18% are from grid electricity, and 10% are from materials and construction.
