Your guide to making the business case for saving energy in your building portfolio

Your guide to making the business case for saving energy in your building portfolio

Launched at Buildings Day at COP21 in December, the new WBCSD Energy Efficiency Toolkit for Buildings (EEB Toolkit) is a landmark guide for energy efficiency that outlines strategies for businesses to significantly reduce energy use across their building portfolios.

Why energy efficiency in buildings is important:
Buildings represent 40% of primary energy consumption and emit around one third of global GHG emissions of human origin; yet buildings provide great potential for delivering significant cuts in both energy use and emissions. Recent advances in technology, design practices and expertise, coupled with behavioral changes, are estimated to achieve up to a tenfold reduction in the energy requirements of individual new buildings and up to a fourfold reduction for individual existing buildings, largely cost-effectively or sometimes even at net negative costs.

The EEB toolkit is a practical guide with a focus on the business case to support decision making on energy efficiency measures. It provides an approach that is applicable to all buildings (e.g. offices, factories, warehouses, laboratories, etc.).

The EEB Toolkit is free to use, and available online.
