Edward Mazria on What’s Next after COP26
December 2021 | Special Report
Martin C. Pedersen reports at Common / Edge
“The building sector is on the cusp of helping change the course of the planet. Despite the seemingly grim news out of Glasgow, there’s been an entire mindset shift and when that happens, you know big changes are in the air.”
COP26 was a busy and fruitful two weeks. It was a great to have a delegation there and be a part of the unifying and amplifying voice of the built environment community, which has grown into a robust presence in the international climate and carbon conversations.
For some more perspective on what happened and what did not … here are a few of our favorite pieces:
