“The scientific underpinning leaves no doubt: Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions need to be drastically reduced across all economic sectors to keep global warming below 2°C. Studies across EU Member States have shown that moving towards an energy system that uses 100% renewable sources is technically and economically feasible. Since the energy sector accounts for more than 80% of GHG emissions in the EU, this is an important message for policy makers. However, effective decarbonisation strategies need to find integrated solutions across all sectors, taking into account interactions and synergies between sectors, but also with other policy areas.
The 2017 decarbonisation workshop will discuss the findings of the ongoing project ““GREEN“ Germany – resource efficient and greenhouse gas neutral” in the light of international expertise and the potentials of sustainable building and infrastructure concepts, as well as identify transformation pathways to a greenhouse gas neutral and resource efficient society.
The conference will include sessions on:
– Introduction to “”GREEN“ Germany – resource efficient and greenhouse gas neutral”
– Buildings and Construction
– Transformation pathways to a greenhouse gas neutral and resource efficient society.
The workshop is targeted at European and international experts and decision makers from natural and social sciences, politics, business, civil society and the media.”
