WBCSD Virtual Meeting - Going beyond individual company action for systems decarbonization - Shared screen with speaker view
Roland Hunziker
You may use the Chat function if you have questions to the panelists. We will address them as best we can.
Regis Meyer
to skanska and Arup: in building sector have you set a target to lighten the buildings structure ?
Anne Gadegaard
Q for the panel: Have you also considered other co-benefits of reducing the carbon-footprint with regards to the build environment such as the health of the inhabitants, considering the build environment as a component of creating health and wellbeing of communities etc?
Fouzi Benkhelifa
question for the panel and to Luca : How are considered/integrated the needed interactions with city managers/planners and their own climate action plan? what about the district level ?
Regis Meyer
to Luca: the building system framework template is very interesting ; shoudnt display it also clearly (column) weight t/m² and period (average life time) ?
Roland Hunziker
To Fouzi: indeed decarbonization at city level is very important. It is where business action meets the needs to reduce emissions at territorial level. Cities can be regulators and they have power through procurement
Roberto Benetello
To Emmanuel Normant: Can you provide examples of digital innovation solutions that could speed-up the decarbonization of the supply chain of the built environment?
Regis Meyer
better information-data in the building value chain have a cost : level estimated ? who is paying ? Open Source ?
Rob Lichtman
How does the framework help companies see the elephants in the room: where their revenue or profit is at risk; where there are profit opportunities; where there are "split incentives"; where optimizing one part of the value chain might cause revenue losses to others; or where the gains from optimizing whole system parts cannot be shared by all the players. Having a framework that can highlight the real tradeoffs would be a big help. Maybe companies can use the framework internally to do this risk/opportunity assessment-and maybe this helps create new partnerships. But the issue of winners and losers needs to be addressed.
Luca De Giovanetti
@Regis: time and use of resources are also critical informations which are part of the data required. These among other elements influence the figure of the life cycle carbon emissions.
Roland Hunziker
We are not able to address all questions, but we have noted them and are happy to be in touch also following this webinar. Thank you!
I very much agree with Rob's point above: How can we learn how to decarbonize thru fully scale-able viable business models. I would just slightly re-phrase it though into "how can we ensure we can all "grow the pie" vs. fight over with winners/losers"
Luca De Giovanetti
@Rob: indeed the framework help to provide transparency and a common platform to engage.
At Swire Properties my colleagues have conducted a pilot study into embodied carbon at one of our new developments. The study looked at measuring carbon emissions from construction activities and embodied carbon from major construction materials used. The results were used to develop its SBT to manage embodied carbon for new development projects. A carbon accounting tool has also been developed and will be adopted by other development projects.
Alberto Carrillo (CDP & SBTi)
sure. I preferred to take a more passive approach now, as others in the panel have more relevant points to contribute
Luca De Giovanetti
@Mark: thanks for sharing. Is important to have more valuable examples. happy to discuss.
Roland Hunziker
