This episode of UN In Action focuses on a major current environmental issue: how to reduce the troubling carbon emissions produced by buildings around the world.
United States Passive House Building
In the United States, buildings are responsible for more than forty percent of carbon emissions. People are not aware of this and think that this effect is more related to cars or other activities.
But silently, all of our buildings, whether they are homes or office buildings, are all burning energy.
This episode of UN In Action reviews the organization's environmental goals to reduce these emissions considerably over the coming decades.
