From an embodied carbon standpoint, “the greenest building may one that is already built”, but from the perspective of operating carbon, existing buildings are a problem. We can’t afford to leave them alone and we can’t afford to replace them. Reusing and upgrading what we have is going to be the key to reducing carbon emissions from the built environment. It is also strengthens neighborhoods, maintains diversity, builds equity, increases resilience, and improves thermal comfort, and health.
