At the 2015 COP21 climate change conference in Paris, an announcement was made about the launch of a new international organization, the Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction (Global ABC), which will be a platform for participating organizations to report on their progress in meeting their commitments for greenhouse gas reductions (called Nationally Determined Contributions or NDCs) within the building sector. 23 countries and many large NGOs have joined to date.
iiSBE has launched an international survey on reduction of greenhouse gas emissions within the built environment sector. The survey is intended to provide a perspective on the effectiveness of actions that may reduce the emission of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). We hope to make it available to many individuals around the world who are engaged in the production of building materials or equipment, the design of buildings and infrastructure or the operation of completed structures or buildings.
