First Carbon Neutral Building in Africa

Carbon neutral buildings are a sub category of low-carbon buildings. Carbon neutral buildings are buildings which are specifically engineered to release no GHG at all or to balance the GHG emissions they produce using GHG trades. During construction and operation, buildings release GHG in the atmosphere. GHG emissions associated with buildings construction are mainly coming […]
