New green building leaders join WorldGBC's Board of Directors

 

Today, the World Green Building Council announced its new Board of Directors 2020-2022—an influential group of global leaders that are driving forwards the largest global-regional-local action network to deliver net zero, healthy, equitable and sustainable built environments for everyone, everywhere.

These individuals have been appointed to the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) Board of Directors for their leadership and dedication to the sustainable buildings movement, both in their country/region and at the global level.

Our Directors are true champions of sustainability and have worked tirelessly to position the best practice in the building and construction industry as central solutions to face the climate change, health and environmental crises. It is this commitment, expertise and strong leadership that has earned them their place on our Board of Directors. I look forward to working with them all as we continue our collective journey with our around 70 member Green Building Councils to transform the built environment and deliver on the ambitions of the Paris Agreement and UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
