Become World Green Building Council’s Partner in Asia Pacific

Friday 01st April 2016

With Green Building Councils (GBCs) in over 70 countries and 27,000 member companies, WorldGBC is the largest global network advancing green building –and we continue to grow. Work side by side with us as a Regional Partner as we transform the industry to make all buildings and communities sustainable, enabling us to thrive on our planet today and in the future.

60 per cent of the world’s population (4.3 billion people) already lives in the Asia Pacific region, with more than 2 billion living in urban areas. In fact, the region has 16 of the world’s 28 mega-cities (cities with 10 million or more inhabitants). The urban population is expected to reach 3.3 billion by 2050, adding further demand for buildings. Set against this backdrop of huge growth, creating buildings that are low or zero carbon is essential to ensure a high quality of life for people, minimise negative impacts on the environment, and maximise economic opportunities. GBCs in our Asia Pacific Network are responding to these challenges and opportunities on the ground.
