Additionally, the report features actions from Green Building Council (GBCs) across the globe facilitating this market transformation such as:
• the release of nine new net zero carbon certification schemes (from France, Canada, Brazil, Austrailia, South Africa, Germany, Swden, India, USA) and two frameworks (from the Netherlands and the UK)
• certifying nearly 390 buildings globally as net zero carbon
• raising awareness through advocacy activities of the urgency and achievability of net zero carbon buildings
• developing industry capacity through educational programmes and industry events
