What do we do with all this building stock now, 5.6 million existing buildings in the US, we're actually building in more problems for ourselves to potentially. So how are we going to address that?
It's a huge issue. And of course, lots of different industries, lots of different players in it. You have owners who, are buying and selling assets. They're trying to determine value and make a return on their investments. You have tenants who are using these buildings. Not always the most effectively, but also have a really big decisive factor in how these buildings operate.
There's a lot of different pieces and trying to kind of pull all these bits together and, kind of focus them on that big picture of how do we get to net zero is pretty daunting.

Buildings contribute to about 40% of GHG emissions globally. So it's a huge footprint, and we're building more, more and more every day.
And in fact, the pace of construction is really considerable.
