|Description||The World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) is a global network of Green Building Councils in around 70 countries. Our 70 Green Building Councils have a global corporate membership of 37,000 companies from across the built environment: professionals (architects, engineers), product manufacturers, developers and construction companies, property agents, tenants, owners, investors, utilities, cities and governments, research institutions and other NGOs.|
|Objectives|| Collectively, our goal is to eliminate the building and construction sector’s carbon emissions by 2050. We take action – championing local and global leadership and empowering our community to drive change. We are building a better future, and are committed to green buildings for everyone, everywhere.
WorldGBC works to strengthen Green Building Councils in member countries by championing their leadership and connecting them to a network of knowledge, inspiration and practical support.
|Activities|| WorldGBC fosters and supports 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 the establishment of the organisation in 2002, they 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, WorldGBC works with its member councils to ensure that green buildings are a part of any comprehensive strategy to deliver carbon emission reductions.
