Guiding you on your journey towards a more sustainable built environment.

The built environment accounts for almost 40% of all global carbon emissions, of which around 11% come from embodied carbon. Real estate owners, occupiers, investors and developers have a crucial role to play in our global journey towards a more sustainable built environment. The challenge is real, and an increasing number of developers, investors and other real estate stakeholders are now taking steps to make sustainability a central force behind their business decisions.

Now in its third edition, Baker McKenzie's Global Sustainable Buildings Guide provides an updated overview of key topics that will be relevant to you on your journey to net-zero. Written by our Real Estate experts from across the globe, the Guide takes a comparative look across 34 jurisdictions at issues such as: certification models that are recognized in different jurisdictions; energy performance standards; available government subsidies and national targets; and regulatory measures and risks.
