Commercial real estate has a critical role to play in fight against climate change and help India achieve its sustainable development goals. The world is already experiencing the hazardous effects of climate change especially on economic and social fronts, and the decarbonization journey must be accelerated quickly across sectors to avert the risks. As per estimates, buildings drive approximately 39 percent of total global emissions and around 11 percent of these emissions are generated by manufacturing materials used in buildings (including steel and cement), while the rest is emitted from buildings themselves and by generating the energy that powers buildings. Building smart, connected offices can not only help companies to achieve operational efficiency but also lower carbon emissions and cut unwanted costs.
Schneider Electric’s Innovation Day aims to provide a collaborative platform for its consumers, while also showcasing the latest technological trends in the industry to better prepare for holistic sustainable growth.
