Established GBC CEO Network

Celebrate. Inspire. Elevate!

Our Established GBC CEO Network brings together the top tier leaders of our global network and movement (nearly 40 CEOs) to celebrate achievements that inspire one another and enable us to reach higher heights.

Our CEO Network leaders are committed to implementing innovative business models for their organisations that maintain highly engaged and impactful members and our joint efforts mobilise the building and construction industry to meet our collective climate targets and the Global Goals for Sustainable Development.

This network understands that history will judge us for what we do today to help guarantee that future generations can enjoy the same liveable planet that we have so clearly taken for granted. Science tells us that urgent and accelerated action is required from all sectors to reverse the effects of climate change, and data tells us of the role of our sector in the crisis. The opportunity exists for us to step up our action and we commit to play our part to secure a brighter future for the planet and a healthy and sustainable built environment.

The WorldGBC CEO Network meets several times throughout the year, with at least one in person meeting at our Leadership Summit.  For further information, please contact Cristina Gamboa, CEO, World Green Building Council via office@worldgbc.org.
