The mayors described how the world should respond to climate change in their “key decade” of the future of the planet. In the “key decade” of the future, energy conservation and emission reduction and building renovation will be the key to implementing the “global green new deal”.
Humankind has entered a period of rapid urbanization. In 2030, the world is expected to have more than 41 very large cities with a permanent population of more than 10 million. The operation of the city consumes two-thirds of the total global energy consumption, and the most important aspect of urban energy consumption is the wide variety of buildings on the ground. Relevant data shows that building energy consumption accounts for about 35% of total energy consumption. If no measures are taken, energy consumption will increase by 50% by 2050.
Jens Birgersson, CEO of ROCKWOOL Group, participated in the conference and delivered a speech: “The ROCKWOOL Group has been committed to integrating the global sustainability goals into our business. These goals are closely related to ROCKWOOL because of our Rockwool products and their solutions play an important role in reducing the energy required for building heating and cooling, significantly reducing building energy consumption and achieving very low emissions levels. The issue of sustainable development has made the world a better place. Over the past 80 years, improving the energy efficiency of buildings has been one of the core missions of the ROCKWOOL Group. We will continue to do our part to help the world. Save as much energy as possible."
