Climate Investment in Emerging Markets: Green Buildings are the largest Opportunities
will constitute a $5 trillion market through 2020 in THE TOP 12 Emerging Markets
The global green buildings market continues to
double in size every three years. The International Energy Agency estimates
that the building sector alone needs an additional investment of up to $296
billion each year if average global temperatures are to be capped at 2°C. This
is in addition to the $358 billion that already goes into the sector each year.
The biggest growth in green buildings is expected in developing countries. For more info see IFC's Climate Information Opportunity report, 2016.
