Our Mission

Who are we?

We are a global network leading the transformation of the built environment to make it healthier and more sustainable. 

Why do we exist?

Buildings and construction account for 39% of energy related CO2 emissions. Therefore, we accelerate action to deliver on the ambition of the Paris Agreement, by eliminating the buildings and construction sector's emissions by 2050.

What’s our mission?

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

How will we achieve it?

By taking action. We champion local and global leadership. We empower our community to drive change. We are greater than the sum of our parts, and commit to green buildings for everyone, everywhere.

Our goals

We are committed to achieving the following by 2050:

  • Limit global temperature rises to 1.5 degrees Celsius
  • Eliminate the building and construction sector’s CO2 emissions 
  • Ensure all buildings are net zero emissions

These goals will ensure we accelerate action to deliver on the ambition of the Paris Agreement.
