Katie McGinty: Smart solutions to decarbonize buildings | In the Green

Almost 90 percent of our lives take place indoors — and the buildings we spend most of that time in emit 40 percent of global greenhouse gases. Rethinking how to share, occupy and run the spaces we inhabit, chief sustainability officer at Johnson Controls Katie McGinty walks us through smart, efficient and eco-friendly ways to decarbonize buildings — and the compounding benefits of doing so. 

In the Green is a TED series featuring senior leaders from around the business world sharing important lessons about carbon emissions reduction that can be applied to workplaces everywhere. Presented by TED Countdown (https://countdown.ted.com) and The Climate Pledge (https://theclimatepledge.com). Visit https://go.ted.com/inthegreen for more.

Countdown is TED’s global initiative to accelerate solutions to the climate crisis. The goal: to build a better future by cutting greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030, in the race to a zero-carbon world.
