GLOBAL STATUS REPORT 2016: Towards zero-emission efficient and resilient buildings

Energy use in buildings and for building construction represents more than one-third of global final energy consumption and contributes to nearly one-quarter of greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions worldwide.

A growing population, as well as rapid growth in purchasing power in emerging economies and developing countries, means that energy demand in buildings could increase by 50% by 2050, while global building floor area is expected to double by 2050, driving energy demand and related GHG emissions for construction.
