WorldGBC at the World Strategic Forum

Tuesday 17 April: 7:30am Working Breakfast | Room: Stoneman-Douglas

Session: Global Real Estate: Responding to Climate Change

In collaboration with JPMorgan Chase & Co.

With buildings accounting for over 40% of energy consumption and 30% of global carbon emissions, sustainability in the real estate sector is a prominent issue as the industry has both a significant impact on the environment and the efforts to curtail global warming. What strategies are real estate leaders implementing to decarbonize their portfolios? How can environmental impacts be lowered and social and economic value maximized over a building's life-cycle? How are technology and advanced materials impacting construction and building operations in the quest to respond to environmental considerations? How can the public and private sector work together to ensure the sector supports global climate change mitigation goals?

Moderator: Jonathan Laski, Director, Global Projects and Partnerships, World Green Building Council 

Speakers:

  • Alec Saltikoff, Executive Director, Global Head of Sustainability, JPMorgan Chase & Co.
  • Mary Taylor, International Director, JLL
  • Brendan Owens, Chief Engineering Officer, USGBC
