Did you know that buildings contribute to climate change? They account for over a third of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. But that can change.
When buildings are net zero they use clean energy, are highly efficient and don’t waste energy – helping us to win the fight against climate change. That makes them heroes. Let’s make all buildings net zero by 2050.
World Green Building Week, 25 September to 1 October 2017, is an annual event that empowers the green building community to deliver green buildings for everyone, everywhere. Buildings can be heroes in the fight against climate change – and so can you.
Buildings are often seen as the villains when it comes to climate change, but they can actually be the heroes; heroes who like us, care about our future. They’re called net zero buildings, and every step we take to make our buildings get close to net zero is important.
This World Green Building Week WorldGBC is encouraging people everywhere to see the faces of the heroes in the buildings where they live and work and to join them in the mission to make all buildings net zero. In this fight, our hero is zero.
World Green Building Week is the flagship event of the global green building movement organised by WorldGBC and led by its network of over 70 Green Building Councils and their 32,000 member companies.
