Decarbonizing the Built Environment | Maximizing Avoided Emissions

The traditional metrics of reductions in site energy, source energy, and energy costs – that have served as benchmarks for high-performance buildings for decades – no longer provide a comprehensive picture of a building’s true environmental impact. Greenhouse gas emissions intensity (GHGI) associated with building energy use is, given what we know, the pertinent metric to quantify building operational performance.
