World Green Building Week 2015

 

What is World Green Building Week?

World Green Building Week started in 2009 to create a more connected, more interactive, more public conversation around the role buildings play in creating our sustainable future.

By working together in the same week all over the world, our message is louder, demonstrates global diversity in activities and creates excitement as people feel part of our growing global community.

This year we are 'Powering Positive Change'

This year we are sharing the story of how green buildings are 'Powering Positive Change' by slashing energy use and emissions, saving water and preventing waste to landfill, and providing healthier places for people.
