Decarbonizing Building Portfolios: The Industry Transition from Energy Reduction to Decarbonization
Buildings generate nearly 40% of annual global energy-related CO2 emissions, with the operations of buildings responsible for 28% annually. Our industry is shifting quickly from an “energy-reduction” mentality to decarbonization, and we are at the forefront of this movement.

This presentation will briefly touch on the basics of greenhouse gas emissions and global targets which will set the context for the main discussion on decarbonization strategies for building portfolios. Integrating carbon forecasting into existing asset management cycles provides critical data for enabling strategic investment decisions to reduce carbon emissions and ultimately to achieve carbon neutrality across the portfolio. Anna will demonstrate, using an example portfolio, the challenges of decarbonization and how priority buildings can be identified. Outlining actionable implementation strategies to achieve decarbonization can bridge the gap between current portfolio realities and achieving future targets.

As energy management experts, every one of us has a unique roll to play in the decarbonization of our built environment. The goal of this webinar is to spark conversation on how we can all excel in reducing global emissions.

Anna is a Canadian leader in climate change solutions for buildings and a recipient of the AEE 2021 Young Energy Professional of the Year award. She was a key contributor to the development of plans to avoid over 18 million tons of CO2e emissions in over 1000 buildings across Canada. As a Climate Change Consultant and Project Manager with WSP Canada, Anna leads the development of holistic sustainability strategies and carbon reduction strategies across Canada as well as internationally.
