Our Mission

Who are we?

The World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) is a global network leading the transformation of the built environment to make it healthier and sustainable.

What’s our mission?

Our mission is to create green buildings for everyone, everywhere to build a better future.

How will we achieve it?

Collectively, with our Green Building Councils (GBCs) in around 70 countries, we drive action to deliver on the ambition of the Paris Agreement and the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development. Through a systems change approach, working across sectors, we aim to transform the building and construction industry towards a net zero carbon and sustainable built environment.

Why do we exist?

Buildings and construction account for 39% of energy related CO2 emissions. 

What is our goal? 

We accelerate action to ensure all buildings are net zero emissions by 2050.
