Climate change is already happening and is one of the biggest challenges of our times. Buildings are one of the largest consumers of energy and contributors to greenhouse gases emissions. Hence, the world Green Building Council is calling for urgent and accelerated action towards 2050 net zero target in the buildings sector via Advancing Net Zero project.

Join Victoria Kate Burrows, the Director of Advancing Net Zero project, in the 4th webinar of Egypt GBC Free Webinar Series – Egypt Speaks Green – entitled “Advancing a Whole Life Vision” taking place on December 1st ,2020.

As the director of the Advancing Net Zero project, Victoria, coordinates Green Building Councils from across almost 70 countries, that are all advocating for a more sustainable built environment, by supporting corporate and city level action towards decarbonisation of the building and construction sector.

In this webinar, Victoria will introduce the WorldGBC’s Advancing Net Zero project. She will also discuss the global trends in Advancing Net Zero and the opportunities for net zero buildings in the MENA region.
