World Green Building Week





16th-20th September 2013

Event Description

Boosting student test scores, improving employee productivity, accelerating patient recovery rates, and slashing energy consumption in homes… green buildings are good for the planet and good for people too.

From 16 to 20 September 2013, Green Building Councils in 98 countries representing more than 25,000 organisations will host events, run campaigns and celebrate World Green Building Week under the theme: 'Greener Buildings, Better Places, Healthier People'.

About the Organiser

The World Green Building Council is a network of national green building councils in more than ninety countries, making it the world’s largest international organisation influencing the green building marketplace.

The WorldGBC’s mission is to strengthen green building councils in member countries by championing their leadership and connecting them to a network of knowledge, inspiration and practical support.

Green building councils are member-based organisations that empower industry leaders to effect the transformation of the local building industry toward sustainability. With one hundred thousand buildings and almost one billion square metres of green building space registered, the influence and impact of this global network is a significant force for social and environmental change.

We foster and support new and emerging Green Building Councils by providing them with the tools and strategies to establish strong organisations and leadership positions in their countries. Since our establishment in 2002, we have been working closely with councils to promote local green building actions and address global issues such as climate change.

By driving collaboration and increasing the profile of the green building market, the WorldGBC works with its member councils to ensure that green buildings are a part of any comprehensive strategy to deliver carbon emission reductions.
