Our carbon footprint needs to change

Residential housing creates 23% of global emissions, with brand new code-compliant homes emitting 10 tons of C02 every year. We need to more aggressively reduce our housing footprint.

The built environment is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. Every house we replace is equivalent to pulling more than 4 cars off the road.
