What: World Green Building Week
Where: Kolkata/Multiple cities Worldwide
When: 21-27 September, 2015
Why: World Green Building Week started in 2009 to create a more connected, more interactive, more public conversation around the role buildings play in creating our sustainable future. Buildings consume a third of the world’s energy and are responsible for a fifth of global emissions. This could double or triple by 2050. Green buildings are powering positive change – slashing energy use and emissions, saving water and waste to landfill, and providing healthier places for people.
Organized by: World Green Building Council – a network of national green building councils in more than one hundred countries, with a mission to strengthen green building councils in member countries by championing their leadership and connecting them to a network of knowledge, inspiration and practical support.
