Buildings and construction are responsible for 39% of global energy-related carbon emissions & contribute in more than 75 % Energy Consumption in India. With the need to save & preserve the energy and understand different practices to conserve the energy. The National Energy Conservation Day is being celebrated every year on December 14 since 1991. The Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), under the Ministry of Power spearheads the celebrations every year. ECONAUR is Celebrating the Energy Conservation Week week and the campaigns for the week with a specific day wise themes.
Heating, powering, and cooling buildings (in-use) contributes 28% to global energy-related carbon emissions, while 11% of these emissions refer to carbon released during the construction process and material manufacturing (embodied emissions). Themed #BuildingLife this year, World Green Building Week is seeking to explore how to create a green, healthy, and climate-resilient built environment for all.
To date, the building and construction industry’s focus has been on operational emissions and how buildings actually perform in-use.
However, in order to fully decarbonize by 2050 to keep global warming to below 1.5 degrees, the building and construction sector must also tackle embodied emissions from the entire building lifecycle, according to the World Green Building Council (World GBC), Econaur being India’s First Integrated Platform for Green Building Solutions working to promote the Sustainable Solutions for making a Green Building and also showcasing the New technology available.
