In this chapter, William Sisson discusses the role of public-private partnerships in addressing the key challenges of the building sector for sustainable development and climate action. Urbanization and population growth will exacerbate the energy use and emissions of the building sector. The industry has issues of fragmentation, so the public-private model developed with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development called the EEB lab is necessary to better understand the opportunities and issues of energy efficiency and usage. Two case studies are given to show this.
