The advanced technology involve in green/sustainable building systems is a platform to conveniently transform a cities road map for low carbon initiatives as office buildings might crave the road in save 2.9 GtCO2e, with a range of 2.5–3.3 GtCO2e, through the combined efforts of design and management initiatives, direct contribution to closing the emissions gap, lays the foundation for future action by encouraging reporting of emissions. Major initiatives of cities and regions are already delivering commitments that should result in emission reductions even higher. Through a literal case study of United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the cities of Johor Bahru and Pasir Gudang both in Malaysia, low carbon imitative respectively, with relationship to office buildings. The outcome is a low carbon cities initiative for Abuja Nigeria. This initiative is to assist policies makers as guidance for establish a framework that will ensure carbon reduction in Abuja.
