“Only One Earth” on World Environment Day 2022

With a theme of “Only One Earth,” World Environment Day 2022 focuses on “Living Sustainably in Harmony with Nature.” Indeed, this year is a historic milestone for the global environmental community. The reason being, it marks 50 years since the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, widely seen as the first international meeting on the environment.

Emergency Mode in 2022

As noted by the United Nations, the world is facing three major environmental crises: 1) climate change, 2) biodiversity and nature loss, 3) pollution and waste, driven by human activity and unsustainable patterns of consumption and production. Accordingly, we’re in emergency mode to save the planet.

Building Efficiency is Low-Hanging Fruit

Conventional buildings are tremendously inefficient and waste about 40% of their energy input right off the bat. As such, this translates into vast amounts of carbon emissions unnecessary spewed into the air. Along these lines, buildings generate about 40% of the U.S.’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Consequently, improving building efficiency equates to the low-hanging fruit of efforts to protect the environment. For example, simply enhancing how a building operates will enable electrification and instantly reduce carbon emissions, which safeguards our planet.
