This In-Brief describes how the built environment can make an important contribution to climate change mitigation while providing more livable spaces. It concludes that with current technologies and the expansion of a few key policies, significant reductions in greenhouse gases can be realized in the near term. Furthermore, combining technology research and development with clear and sustained climate and energy policies would drive more dramatic reductions over time.
