C40 & USGBC Release Green Building City Market Briefs

Building energy use is a leading contributor to urban – and global -- greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and therefore represents one of the greatest opportunities for cities to tackle climate change. The longstanding partnership between the C40 and the World/US Green Building Councils has focused on helping cities seize these very opportunities to realize efficiencies in building energy and water resource use, delivering results in carbon reductions and climate resilience.
