Mission and vision

Objectives

The Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction (GlobalABC) works towards a zero-emission, efficient, and resilient buildings and construction sector through:

  1. Raising ambitions to meet the Paris climate goals. While the sector is a major emitter, it also holds huge potential for improvement. We work to raise the level of ambition in retrofitting existing buildings and future-proofing the investments that we will see going into new buildings over the next 15 years.
  2. Mobilizing all actors along the value chain. Faced with a fragmented value chain, all stakeholders – from design to construction, operations and demolition in the private and public sectors – need to play their part. We encourage policy frameworks that promote both uptake of existing, cost-effective solutions and private sector innovation – using sustainable public procurement as a lever to create markets and investor security. 

Mission & Vision

It is our mission to connect governments, private sector and organisations to drive the transformation towards a zero-emission, efficient, and resilient buildings and construction sector to achieve our vision that in a future-proof world all buildings – old and new – are zero emission, efficient and resilient.

Members
