The future of development relies on the adoption of low-carbon technologies and practices for heating and cooling buildings. This applies to both construction and renovations and requires a re-evaluation of urban planning in our efforts to combat global warming.
Manufacturing, particularly an energy-intensive industry like steelmaking, contributes to GHG emissions worldwide. Perhaps lesser known is the growing use of carbon-cutting technologies and systems across the entire industrial landscape. These advances have a marked positive impact on the environment while helping industries compete in the net-zero economy.
The rise of sustainable mobility options powered by low- and zero-carbon energy is a vital step in slowing global warming. Yet complex challenges remain regarding fuel choices, charging infrastructure, investments in next-generation mass transit, and ongoing support for walking, cycling and other modes of active transportation.
