India can cut emissions from its buildings to half by 2050 to meet net-zero target

India can cut emissions from its buildings to half by 2050 to meet net-zero target

Emissions from buildings are expected to multiply four times by 2050.

In the coming 27th Annual UN Climate Talks, COP27, the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) and the National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA) released From the Ground Up, a news report that presents a novel whole-system approach to reduce energy and emissions from India’s built environment. Emissions from buildings are expected to multiply four times by 2050. By adhering to a whole-system approach, the intensity of emissions from building operations can be reduced by 45 percent by 2030.The total buildings emissions can be reduced by 75 percent by 2030. To accomplish this, there is a need for a pathway that first reduces energy needs and then caters to the needs as efficiently as possible and finally provides clean energy supply and optimizes the demand.

Director of NIUA, Hitesh Vaidya, launched the report, says that we are at a crucial juncture in India's growth where development and urban migration are occurring at a rapid pace. This poses an opportunity to build it right the first time. He called upon building developers, building material manufacturers, NGOs, policymakers, equipment manufacturers to come together and collaborate on achieving the ambitious climate targets set by the Honourable Prime Minister.
