To improve the energy efficiency of residential buildings and services could reduce the emissions that cause climate change by 23% and employ tens of millions of people worldwide in the face of 2050. This is one of the main conclusions of the report presented today by one of the main groups in the job of the World Congress of Sustainable Construction, World Sustainable Building 2014, held in Barcelona from 28 to October 30.

Rehabilitate buildings to spend less energy would reduce electricity demand in the housing units in a 24% and up to 27% in blocks of services with a view to 2050, according to estimates by experts from the working group Area Global Vision of the World Sustainable Building 2014.
