Did you know?
Did you know buildings and construction are responsible for 39% of global
energy-related carbon emissions? 28% of these emissions come
from the operational "in-use" phase – to heat, cool and power buildings.
11% of these emissions are attributed to embodied carbon emissions, which
refers to carbon that is released during the “before-use” phase in the
construction process and material manufacturing.
What is World green Building Week?
World Green Building Week (23-29 Sept 2019) is an annual campaign that
motivates and empowers us all to deliver greener buildings.
This World Green Building Week, we’re #BuildingLife and exploring how we
can create a green, healthy and climate resilient built environment for all.
The week is led by the World Green Building Council, its network of almost 70
Green Building Councils and their 37,000 members, and corporate partners.
