WorldGBC seeks input for Better Places for People project Metrics Framework

Friday 11th January 2019

 

The World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) invites respondents to participate in the consultation period about the strategic update of the existing Metrics Framework for one of its global projects, Better Places for People.

Better Places for People is WorldGBC's global project to support Green Building Councils (GBCs) and their members to increase the demand and supply of green buildings which are supportive of the health, wellbeing and productivity of the people within them. Now in 2019, the Steering Committee of Better Places for People intends to update this Framework to remain relevant in an advancing market and, importantly, to align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

WorldGBC's ambition is to create a green building framework that will revolutionise the industry. The framework will outline WorldGBC's definition of a truly sustainable building and help grow the global evidence base to strengthen the message of the Better Places for People campaign.

And what is that message? That truly sustainable buildings are better places for people to live, work and learn in. 

The purpose of this framework is to engage building occupiers to collect evidence to demonstrate that sustainable buildings (aligned with the principles of the UN Sustainable Development Goals) create a better environment for people, specifically through improving human health, wellbeing and productivity.

Please see the Consultation Paper here, providing full details on WorldGBC's proposed update, with an in-built link to a form for you to submit your feedback, opinions and ideas.

WorldGBC hopes to create a framework that helps us promote and develop buildings that are "win, win, wins"; for people, for planet and for the purse-strings. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

With many thanks for your cooperation and support.

Please provide all feedback within the Google Form, or submit via email to Catriona Brady, Head of Better Places for People at cbrady@worldgbc.org prior to Friday 8 February 2019.
