Title: Tackling Climate Change in the U.S.: The Potential for Greenhouse Gas Reductions in the Buildings Sector

Abstract

This paper is based largely on a report published by the Pew Center on Global Climate Change that describes the potential for greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions from the buildings sector [1]. Assuming vigorous encouragement from market-transforming policies and successful R&D, it concludes that green products, technologies, and practices could reduce emissions from buildings by almost one quarter by the year 2025, or by an amount roughly equal to 10% of total projected U.S. carbon emissions.
