The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The Seventeen SDGs came into effect in January 2016, and they will continue to guide United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) policy and funding until 2030.
It is estimated that by 2050, 6.5 billion people i.e. two-thirds of all humanity will be living in urban areas. The current global economy is reliant on fossil fuels, and the increase of greenhouse gas emissions is creating drastic changes to our climate system. To achieve sustainable development goals there is a significant need of new way for building and managing the urban spaces.
Cove.tool with it's unique algorithm performs the cost vs energy optimization for the proposed building. This data driven approach at the design stage helps to save the material, energy and money. Also, the solar energy impact on the proposed building can be simulated with the help of cove.tool. With these amazing features, cove.tool proudly stands with the United Nations to reach the targets set out in the SDGs by 2030 and leave a better planet for future generations.
