Buildings consume 40% of the world's energy, contributing to emissions of toxic air pollutants and greenhouse gases. CoBE (Cobenefits of the Built Environment) is a tool to determine the health and climate benefits related to reductions in energy use.

CASE STUDIES

METHODOLOGY

Reducing a building's energy consumption reduces amount of energy produced by power plants, resulting in fewer emissions of pollutants that contribute to climate change and cause premature mortality, hospitalization, and lost school or work days.
