Data Availability - The Barrier to Net Zero Carbon That Nobody is Talking About

The Committee on Climate Change ( CCC) advised in 2019, that the UK should be aiming for net zero emissions by 2045-2050 in order to be compatible with the1.5ºC Paris Agreement goal.

Its recommendations were:

  • For the UK, a new target: net-zero greenhouse gases by 2050 (up from the existing emissions reductions target of 80% from 1990 levels by 2050);
  • For Scotland, a net-zero date of 2045, 'reflecting Scotland’s greater relative capacity to remove emissions than the UK as a whole';
  • For Wales, a 95% reduction in greenhouse gases by 2050, reflecting it having 'less opportunity for CO2 storage and relatively high agricultural emissions that are hard to reduce'.

But how to get there and why is it proving not to be so easy?

Are you happy with how 2018 turned out?

At a global stage, the world certainly experienced its fair share of challenging events, from the mundane to the outrageous (let’s not get into the gory details here, you all know what and who we mean...). Back at Fabriq, however, it’s been our best year yet, and we’re looking forward to continuing on this trajectory into 2019 and beyond!

Apologies for the title. Yes, it helped to grab your attention. And no, we didn’t support the guy during the election and definitely no – we will not “just get along” now that he’s made it to the top. Instead we will fight harder than ever before to protect the planet and reduce our consumption of natural resources and toxic emissions. It might even make the RoW (rest of world = everyone outside of the rust belt) more united in fighting the good fight.

New tech and real estate – will they ever match up?

Melvin Lim

November 17, 2016

The property industry is notorious for sticking to existing processes and tools (or the lack thereof). Energy management in buildings is often an initiative that’s spread across various internal stakeholders and external contractors. This can lead to a loss of accountability and momentum to address inefficiencies. Implementing new solutions or technologies becomes a painfully long-drawn process. Combine the two - energy and buildings - and you have one of the most challenging markets to effect positive change in.
