The world needs to reach net zero emission by 2050 to keep global warming within 1.5 °C by the end of this century. The built environment plays an important role in this net zero transition. This talk will start with the general carbon management framework and then discuss the concept of net-zero architecture and how to achieve it by illustrating with various case studies.
