WorldGBC Speakers' Bureau

World Green Building Council Board members, staff and partners are uniquely placed to provide global, in-depth perspectives on major green building and construction trends.

From topics such as how a building can impact upon on occupant’s health and wellbeing, how the Paris Agreement on climate change will impact the building and construction industry, or how green building can help us meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, our network has a range of green leaders who can deliver engaging keynote speeches and compelling presentations.  

And because we work on the ground in five different regions, our speakers can provide specific intelligence on those areas and markets – from the latest decisions and consultations underway at the European Union; the shifting markets and trade opportunities in Singapore, Hong Kong and China; to the opportunities for harnessing green building in Latin America to support development, economic empowerment and poverty alleviation.

If you’re interested in having a WorldGBC representative speak at your organisation’s event, please contact Georgina Eldridge ( for more information and availability.
