Conceptually shows the accumulation of GHG emissions

Fig. 6. (a) IPCC GHG emission reduction pathways (acc. [2]) in relation to the temporal distribution of GHG emissions (embodied and operational) across the life
cycle of (b) ‘New Standard’ buildings and (c) ‘New Advanced’ buildings. Projections for future reduction of emission intensity (hatched areas) are based on a yearly
improvement of 2% (acc. IEA [4]).
