“The study concentrates on market-based solutions to an important aspect of the energy and environmental challenges the region faces. Buildings account for nearly one-third of energy use and a similar proportion of total global greenhouse gas emissions. More than half of the world’s new construction is taking place in Asia. Studies estimate that China and India could cut current building energy consumption by 25 percent simply by using energy more efficiently. Similar savings are available for many other Asian countries.”
