As many countries and cities pledge to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 at the latest, the Zero Carbon Building Accelerator, a BEA project, is supporting governments in implementing ambitious climate goals through national roadmaps and city action plans for building decarbonization.

The Zero Carbon Building Accelerator launched in early 2021 in Turkey and Colombia, where WRI and in-country partners, the Colombia Green Building Council and WRI Turkey, are working closely with national and local expert stakeholders from across sectors to identify the transformative actions to build systemic change towards decarbonizing the buildings sector. This project will develop a pipeline of additional cities across the Building Efficiency Accelerator network by leveraging the resulting tools, best practices, and financial solutions.
