Snøhetta Signs Call on Carbon Initiative

Feb 15, 2021

Buildings and construction account for around 39 % of global carbon emissions. More than two thirds are generated from operations, including heating, cooling, and lighting. The remainder is related to embodied carbon emissions in material production, transportation, and construction. As the world’s population and the severity of the climate crisis continue to grow, the industry is being challenged to build more responsibly.

As of today, Snøhetta is proud to be a signatory of the Call on Carbon, an initiative started by Climate Leadership Coalition, the Haga Initiative, and Skift Business Climate Leaders. The initiative calls countries to back their net zero targets with Paris Agreement consistent and effective strategies so that we can push our work and industry forward in the right direction.
