Description The GBPN’s goal is to contribute to the building sector achieving its full energy savings and CO2 mitigation potential of more than 2.1 Gt by 2030.

Objectives Our mission is to provide intelligence to optimize building energy policies and accelerate net zero energy or positive energy for new buildings, deep renovation for existing buildings, and integrated renewables.
Activities The GBPN assists governments and industry policy makers to identify, adapt and implement policy best practices for low-energy, affordable and healthy buildings, contributing to low carbon and resilient cities.
