MENA Green Building Awards

The MENA Green Building Awards honour organisations in the MENA region that demonstrate clear implementation of sustainable design, construction and/or operation of buildings and structures.

The awards are endorsed by WorldGBC and held in partnership with six MENA Green Building Councils, and recognise excellence in sustainability from organisations operating in the MENA region, including public and private sector enterprises, associations, consultants and practitioners.

In 2019, the awards included a new category for Zero Building/Zero Building Design of the Year, and were presented at a ceremony held at The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina on 16 October 2019.

Announcing the 2019 awards, Saeed Al Abbar, Chairman of EmiratesGBC, said: “This year’s awards have set another benchmark in the remarkable strides that the Middle East and North Africa region has made in promoting sustainable built environments. The innovative approaches, new products and above all, a clear commitment to make a difference shines through in the initiatives that the winners – as well as nominations we received – have rolled out. We see this as a tangible indication of the progress achieved by the region in creating sustainable building that deliver on the vision of regional governments. The commendable work on net zero buildings, a new category introduced this year, demonstrate the forward-looking measures already implemented in the region – making MENA a key partner in the global move towards zero buildings.”
