Tai Lee Siang, the Chairman of WorldGBC’s Board of Directors, is the latest international expert to be featured on United Technologies’ Race to 9 Billion podcast series.

Lee Siang (pictured left) was interviewed in Beijing by John Mandyck, Chief Sustainability Officer for United Technologies (right), who sits on WorldGBC’s Corporate Advisory Board.

The Race to 9 Billion podcast series explores sustainability in a rapidly growing and urbanising world. Lee Siang is featured in an episode called “If Buildings Could Speak: International Voices on Sustainable Buildings.”

The conversation focused on the rise of the heath and wellbeing agenda in green buildings, and WorldGBC’s target for all buildings to be net zero by 2050 under its Advancing Net Zero project.

Nellie Cheng of the U.S. Green Building Council was also featured on the same episode. Previous guests on the podcast have included Susan Goldberg, Editor in Chief of National Geographic Magazine.
