Green building & the Sustainable Development Goals

The World Green Building Council is delighted to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

These 17 goals set forth a challenge for humanity to decouple economic growth from climate change, poverty and inequality.

We believe green building can contribute towards meeting the Sustainable Development Goals, and have produced three infographics (shown below) to help visually demonstrate this.

You can download the infographics in either low-res web versions, or high-res formats by clicking on the blue download button on the right hand side of this page. (Design files for translation purposes are available on request.)

For further information on how green buildings are contributing to the SDGs, read this blog by Dominika Czerwinska, WorldGBC's Director of Membership and Regional Networks.
