Our offices and homes will come under increased scrutiny as the world races to net zero. To grapple with this complex issue, we commissioned global innovation intelligence platform Springwise to produce a research paper, The Future of the Sustainable Home and Office, which is full of the latest ideas to support a low-carbon future powered by clean energy and energy efficiency.
Net zero refers to the balance between the amount of greenhouse gas produced and the amount removed from the atmosphere. To prevent the worst effects of climate change, global net human-caused emissions of CO2 need to fall by about 45 percent from 2010 levels by 2030 – reaching net zero by around 2050.
Our modern lifestyle requires us to consume energy one way or another whilst at home or at work. That’s why the challenge is to find ways to live our lives more efficiently in spaces that are equally as efficient.
