Enhancing energy efficiency of buildings with sustainable materials

Buildings alone are responsible for over 30% of global greenhouse gas emissions and are a major contributor to climate change. According to the International Energy Agency, ASEAN’s building sector accounted for 23% of final energy use and 24% of CO2 emissions. Green buildings therefore have huge potential to combat emissions while also offering one of the most cost-effective ways to do so through measures such as increasing energy efficiency.
