WorldGBC launches #ActOnClimate for World Green Building Week 2020


Today we launch World Green Building Week (WGBW), the annual campaign that empowers the green building community to deliver sustainable buildings for everyone, everywhere.

This year’s WGBW (21 – 25 September 2020) we’re asking you to #ActOnClimate.

We’re calling on the building sector, policymakers and governments to take urgent action to deliver net zero buildings. We’re also calling on them to provide a showcase for those leaders already taking action to show where, why and how they are achieving it.

It is time to bring these solutions to scale, and industry is ready to deliver.

Our campaign to #ActOnClimate is threefold:

  • For Communities – net zero buildings support a healthier and more sustainable built environment, creating thriving and resilient communities.
  • For the Planet – buildings account for more than one-third of global carbon emissions. It’s vital we prioritise net zero buildings today to protect our planet and future generations.
  • Net Zero Buildings for Economies – investing in new and existing net zero buildings today can stimulate innovation, activate supply chains and create jobs.

What we’re doing

Over five days, the World Green Building Council network of Green Building Councils and partners will showcase examples of global industry leadership. We will deliver a coordinated, collective voice of the industry to demonstrate the existing leadership in the net zero building movement, and call for bolder and more ambitious regulation to unlock these solutions.
