The construction sector is not only one of the most reliable engines for economic recovery, in the current COVID-19 context. It is also a formidable vector to continue advancing towards net-zero construction, including through an accelerated uptake of low carbon materials and solutions. Reaching the COP21 ambitions must remain a priority and the building and construction sector can effectively contribute to it. And this underlines a prerequisite: our ability to define what forms net-zero construction and how we measure the carbon footprint across the lifecycle of construction projects. The panelists provided different perspectives on some of the tools, market requirements and public policies that helped drive this agenda. The session was hosted by Jamie Gentoso, CEO - US Cement, LafargeHolcim and was moderated by Tom Erb from the Centre for Climate and Energy Solution (C2ES) Panelists include: * Nigel Topping, High Level Climate Action Champion for the COP26 * Cristina Gamboa, CEO World Green Building Council * Magali Anderson, Chief Sustainability Officer, LafargeHolcim * Bill Sisson, Executive Director, WBCSD North America * Lena Hök, SVP Sustainability, Skanska * Joseph J. Ferrara, V.P of Ferrara Bros, LLC, a US Concrete Company * Joel Howrani Heeres, Office of Mayor Mike Duggan, City of Detroit (invited)

The building sector represents a large share of worldwide carbon emissions (c. 40%) and thus reducing the carbon footprint of the built-environment will be essential to reach the ambitions of the Paris Agreement. This will require a deep transformation of how we envision, plan, design, build and manage our built-environment. On the one hand, policy makers across several jurisdictions are exploring how to align the built environment to the 1.5°C scenario and trajectory and how to develop legislative tools to help the fragmented value chain to integrate carbon performance in the decision-making process. On the other hand, one can question whether an approach based on single metric performance will be enough to respond to the challenge? Can we develop a more systemic approach where our built environment plays a repair & restore function, including in terms of carbon? Panelists *Martina Otto, Head of Cities Unit at UNEP and Head of the Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction (GABC) *Nirmal Kishnani, Associate Professor of Architecture in the School of Design & Environment (SDE) at the National University of Singapore (NUS) *Karen Scrivener, Professor and Head of Laboratory of Construction Materials at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL)
