Real estate investment professionals, owners, and developers to gather in Nairobi to explore the ROI of efficient buildings
Africa’s population is projected to reach 2.4 billion by 2050, that’s 1.3 billion more people than there is today. This growth means a huge demand for buildings and an estimated 80 per cent of those that will exist in 2050 are yet to be built. Data from the International Energy Agency shows that buildings and construction are currently responsible for almost 40% of global greenhouse gas emissions and by improving the energy efficiency of buildings, we could reduce energy consumption by 5-6% and subsequently reduce operational costs of a building.
