“We are looking forward to becoming part of the WorldGBC network to increase our participation globally in transforming the built environment towards sustainability. We are excited to connect regionally with other GBCs, to exchange knowledge, ideas and experience of positive accomplishments in achieving shared goals. Our members will also have the benefit of being recognised worldwide as supporters of a sustainable future.
