Our CEO named as one of Top 10 women leading on climate action

Monday 13th March 2017

 

Terri Wills, WorldGBC’s CEO, has been named in a list of 10 women leading the global push towards climate action, gender equality and social justice for all.

The list appeared in Eco-Business, a Singapore-based news website, and coincided with this year’s International Women’s Day, which took place on 8 March.

Terri appeared alongside other inspirational women such as Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change; Winnie Byanyima, Executive Director of Oxfam International; the author and activist Naomi Klein; and Rachel Kyte, the CEO of the UN’s Sustainable Energy for All initiative.

The article said: “As the chief executive officer of the World Green Building Council, it is Terri Wills’s job to lead the global building and construction sector—a heavily male dominated industry—towards sustainable, low-carbon practices.

“…Wills is focused on fostering partnerships and collaborations to achieve a global transformation in the building sector.”

WorldGBC celebrated International Women’s Day last week by sharing the views of women leading the global green building movement. Nearly 50 per cent of Established Green Building Councils are led by women. Romilly Madew, CEO of the Green Building Council Australia, also blogged for WorldGBC.
