Sample text

The key global challenges that have prompted action on sustainable development are discussed below followed by a summary of some of the more specific legislative and corporate drivers that are likely to impact on the way buildings are designed in future. We are now all part of a global community which has failed to live within its limits and which now faces huge challenges brought about by our growth in population, depletion of natural resources and damage to our environment. One of the greatest challenges facing humanity is climate change resulting largely from the burning of fossil fuels to provide energy and the resulting emissions of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

1 At this level there is at least a 77 per cent chance – and perhaps up to a 99 per cent chance, depending on the climate model used – of a global average temperature rise exceeding 2°C. CO2e is used to measure the impact of a broad range of greenhouse gases. At present the annual flow of emissions is accelerating, as fast growing economies invest in high carbon infrastructure and as demand for energy and transport increases around the world. The Stern Review highlighted that if these emissions are left unchecked atmospheric concentrations of 550 ppm CO2e could be reached as early as 2035.
