ASHRAE’s Task Force for Building Decarbonization (TFBD) was formed in Spring 2021 as an initiative of President Chuck Gulledge and President-Elect Mick Schwedler. Jurisdictions globally are confronting climate change and recognizing that building decarbonization is an important component in their efforts. The worldwide building sector accounts for about 40% of energy-related carbon emissions and buildings remain a major sector that lacks sufficient mitigation policies. As the standards authority for energy usage in buildings, ASHRAE recognizes that our long-standing initiatives in energy efficiency should be expanded to building decarbonization.
