IPCC report: Real estate is at the heart of strategies to mitigate climate change

Real Estate Montréal,

The latest IPCC report, published in early April, calls on all economic actors to redouble their efforts to limit global warming. The responsibility of the real estate sector, in the design of cities and the construction of buildings, gives it a major role in meeting this challenge.

The latest IPCC report is once again an appeal for the future of our planet. Experts remind us that, if we collectively want to limit global warming to 1.5°C, it is more vital than ever to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in all sectors of the global economy, rapidly and sustainably. In recent years, GHG emissions have continued to rise – albeit at a slowing rate – and it will be impossible to stay below 1.5°C without stronger climate action in this decade. Rapid decarbonization of our economy requires substantial reductions in fossil fuel use and improved energy efficiency, such as through electrification and the rapid uptake of low-emission energy sources.
