About the Event

According to a 2017 Global Status Report released by the UN Environment Programme, we need to reduce global building energy use by 30% by 2030 to meet the Paris Agreement target limiting global temperature rise to 2 C or lower.

At the same time, the ABCB estimates that new buildings account for just 2% of Australia's total building stock each year.

Together this means we must focus on our existing building stock and ask ourselves - how can we improve what we already have?

IBPSA Australasia is excited to bring you a webinar focused on exactly that issue.  Our webinar will feature two experts sharing their insights and lessons learned from years of experience improving existing buildings.

Join us for a midday session - bring your lunch and your questions and we'll see you online!
