Metrics of Success

2024 Buildings Action Coalition Summit

8 – 10 April 2024

The Riverside Hotel, Enniscorthy, County Wexford, Ireland

The Enniscorthy Forum’s 2024 Buildings Action Coalition Summit gathers partners and stakeholders from across the world to explore Metrics of Success: Securing Real Progress Toward Sustainability in Buildings. This second summit of the BAC will explore the milestones and performance standards by which the BAC community can “move the needle” worldwide on carbon emissions, environmental impact, quality of life, and social and environmental justice. The result will be identification of the most effective actions that the BAC community can take in the coming years.

The Summit advances the agenda of the Buildings + Climate Global Forum led by France and the UN Environment Programme in March 2024 in Paris to support the Buildings Breakthrough Target:

Collaborative Cities & Community Design
Brussels &Washington DC
Glasgow & Pittsburgh
Integrated Buildings & District Systems
Data & Data Centres

Structure and Procedures

State of Play

With the Building Breakthrough Target as a beacon, COP28 as a status report, and quality of life uneven around the world, the vast gap between goal and accomplishment on sustainable buildings could not be more apparent. We know the ultimate consequences. What should be the focus of the BAC’s work, and what are the right metrics of progress?

The 2024 BAC Summit will advance efforts of the BAC community to set goals for themselves and for the Coalition — to define what should be done and how it will drive building decarbonization and meaningful improvement in the quality of life.
