Explore building incentives

We spend 90% of our time indoors. Our buildings are critical to human health, happiness, and productivity.

And to address climate change we’ll need to rethink the buildings sector, too.

Buildings contribute 40% of global CO2 emissions, annually. To achieve our net zero emissions target by 2050, we need to reduce and even remove emissions related to both embodied and operational emissions in buildings.

Build Incentive is an investigation into the value chain of the building industry, to uncover the existing misalignment / transaction costs that prevent possibility and progress—for climate and beyond.

The thing is: these learnings are not specific to the building industry. Lessons in establishing supply/demand-side markets, creating the right incentives (regulatory, commercial, behavioral), implementing technologies for ongoing maintenance, and communicating change to varying interest groups bring benefit across multiple sectors.

Let’s learn to build incentive.
