About this webinar

This course addresses the UN Sustainable Development Goal for Affordable and Clean Energy and how the creators of the built world can facilitate this goal. Energy is key to a sustainable world and buildings are the largest consumers of energy and producers of CO2. Join us to learn how you can create buildings that use less energy, make energy affordable and accessible and even how a factory can be a forest.
