World Green Building Week14 August 2018: The World Green Building Week is an annual event that motivates and empowers us all to deliver greener buildings.

This year from 24 – 30 September 2018, we want everyone, everywhere to take action and commit to making a change in the homes they build, lease or live in. We can all do something to make our home a greener, healthier and more energy efficient home. Let’s start now.

Did you know that buildings – including the homes we live in – account for around 40% of global energy consumption? That’s over a third of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Making a greener world starts at home and it doesn’t have to cost the earth.

Let’s put it in context. The average global electricity consumption per household is 3,500kwh – that’s 2.6 metric tons of C02 or the same as 6,384 miles driven by an average car. If we all reduced our consumption by 20% that would deliver a saving of just over half a metric ton of CO2 per household – that’s the equivalent of 1,277 miles of driving or 21.5 propane cylinders used for home barbecues. Check out this handy calculator and work out your carbon footprint. How do you stack up?

Everyone can do something to make their home greener. We can’t change the world overnight, but we can all do our bit, however small you start. You can save energy and money, create a healthier space to live in and make the planet a greener, better, safer home for generations to come. It’s easy when you know how.

World Green Building Week is celebrated annually to draw attention to the importance of creating healthier, more sustainable buildings and communities.

The number of countries participating in World Green Building Week tripled last year and we expect even more growth this year.
