About the Better Build Green Campaign

Better Build Green is the World Green Building Council’s new campaign which focuses on the UN climate change negotiations - COP21 in Paris.

The campaign aims to show the world that green buildings offer one of the best and most cost-effective ways to tackle climate change and help keep global temperature rises within the two degrees limit.

The message is simple: not only had we better build green if we are to reach a two-degree world tomorrow, but we are better off today if we do.

The campaign highlights:

  • Green buildings’ key role in reducing emissions and creating economic and societal benefits.

  • Buildings Day - the first ever day dedicated to the building sector and its contribution to tackling climate change at COP, which was orchestrated by WorldGBC and other partners.

  • WorldGBC’s global collective commitment for COP21 and national commitments from Green Building Councils.
