Former WorldGBC Chair Bruce Kerswill receives Lifetime Achievement Award

Wednesday 18th October 2017

 

Bruce Kerswill, the former Chair of the World Green Building Council, has received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA).

Bruce was honoured at a special ceremony last week at GBCSA’s annual convention in Cape Town.

The Award was given in celebration of GBCSA’s 10 year anniversary and to an individual who has shown an “outstanding commitment” to the African green building agenda over the past decade. Bruce was the recipient of the award in acknowledgement of his exceptional contribution to green building – in Africa and globally.

Bruce, who was the Founding Executive Chair of the GBCSA when it began in 2007, joined the WorldGBC Board of Directors in 2009. In 2013 he was elected as Chair of the Board, a position he served in until 2016. During this time, Bruce helped steer the organisation into its next phase, with the appointment of Terri Wills as CEO and WorldGBC’s high profile role at the COP21 climate change conference in Paris.

WorldGBC would like to congratulate Bruce on the Award! 

Last week, GBCSA launched its net zero building certification through WorldGBC's Advancing Net Zero project. Read the news story.
