Social Impact across the Built Environment

On 4 December 2023 the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) published a new position paper, ‘Social Impact across the Built Environment: Prioritising People throughout the building life cycle’, which provides a framework for how the building and construction sector can address social impact throughout the building life cycle in order to secure an equitable and resilient future for everyone. 

This paper has been developed by WorldGBC’s  global programme Better Places for People (BPFP) in collaboration with a network of 15 Green Building Councils around the world, as well as our partners Buro Happold, Expo City Dubai, GHD, Multiplex and Shaw Contract, and a network of 22 industry and knowledge partners.

The publication will be showcased on 6 December 2023, during a flagship event at the UN Climate Summit COP28 in Dubai, UAE, called ‘Buildings and Cities: Pivotal solutions for shaping our future’ (30 November–12 December 2023).
