Climate Change: Implications for Buildings (2014)

Description

This document is one of a series synthesizing the most pertinent findings of AR5 for specific economic and business sectors, in this case - construction and buildings. It was born of the belief that the building sector could make more use of AR5, which is long and highly technical, if it were distilled into an accurate, accessible, timely, relevant and readable summary.
Although the information presented here is a ‘translation’ of the key content relevant to this sector from AR5, this summary report adheres to the rigorous scientific basis of the original source material.
