Save The Date: Pre-COP26 Built Environment Summit

Date: 27-29 October 2021

Right now our buildings are responsible for approximately 40% of the world’s carbon emissions. And when accounting for the carbon embodied in all associated infrastructure, that figure is substantially higher.

GlobalABC is a convening partner of the Pre-COP26 Built Environnement Summit, hosted by the Royal Institute of British Architects and co-hosted by Architecture 2030 and Architects Declare. This coalition of over 100,000 (and growing) architecture, planning, engineering and construction professionals is calling on the world’s governments to provide the necessary support and legislation to accelerate the systemic change in the built industry to stay within the 1.5°C carbon budget.

The consensual declaration resulting from this Built Environment Summit will be presented to the governments of the world to call for the change our collective future demands.
