World Green Building Week 16 September 2019

World Green Building Week 2019 – #BuildingLife (via Irish Green Building Council)

The flagship event in the global green building calendar – is fast approaching! In the last week of September (23 to 29 Sept), the Irish Green Building Council and its member organisations will celebrate World Green Building Week 2019.

This year’s campaign aims to raise greater awareness of the carbon emissions from all stages of a building’s lifecycle, and therefore encourage new practices and new ways of thinking to work towards reducing carbon emissions from buildings. To date, the building and construction industry’s focus has been on operational emissions and how buildings actually perform in–use.
