Buildings and communities are responsible for over 40 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. Global awareness of the urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental degradation is driving the need for rapid formation of Green Building Councils around the world.

Their goal is through leadership collaboration, they hope global construction industry will transform traditional building practices and fully adopt sustainability as the means by which our environments thrive, economies prosper and societies grow to ensure the future health of our planet.
