Buildings produce 30% of greenhouse gases by David Flint

"Globally, buildings are responsible for 40% of annual energy consumption ... up to 30% of all energy-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions [and] one-third of humanity's resource consumption ... With urbanization increasing rapidly in the world's most populous countries, building sustainably is essential to achieving sustainable development"
