Description

Description Launched at COP21, the Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction (GlobalABC) is a voluntary partnership of national and local governments, inter-governmental organisations, businesses, associations, networks and think thanks committed to a common vision: A zero-emission, efficient and resilient buildings and construction sector. The GlobalABC functions as an umbrella or meta-platform – a network of networks – that brings together initiatives and actors focusing on the buildings and construction sector. The GlobalABC network currently includes 128 members, among which are 29 countries.
Objectives The GlobalABC works towards a zero-emission, efficient, and resilient buildings and construction sector through:

• Advocating the buildings and construction sector’s potential and impact in climate mitigation and adaption, at high level events such as the Climate Conference of the Parties.

• Tracking progress in the buildings and construction sector by issuing an annual Global Status Report that draws heavily on information provided by members of the GlobalABC.

• Setting a joint framework to put the buildings and construction sector on a well-below 2°C degree path through developing a common vision and goals along with a timeline to reach goals (Global Roadmap).

Activities Tracking progress: Annual Global Status Report on the status of the Buildings and Construction Sector

Forging regional pathways towards zero emission, efficient, and resilient buildings and construction through stakeholder-driven regional roadmaps, based on our Global Roadmap.
