Autodesk Launches Online Game on Green Building

YouTube Preview Image

Did you know the number one source of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States is buildings? In fact, 38 percent of all carbon emissions in America come from powering our buildings, and according to McKinsey & Company, energy efficiency measures alone can tackle about half the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions 60 to 90 percent by the year 2050.

But, what can be done to spread the word? How can engineers, architects, landlords, and the like –as well as the general public –be encouraged to address building performance? Autodesk, the California-based software design firm recently launched an online , called RETROFITS , to help educate everyone–from industry professionals to teachers, parents and students –about green building issues.

Designed as half quiz show and half fast finger action, REFTROFITS builds awareness about the benefits of green building renovation as players compete for a place on the high points leader board. You can play it right here.
