2020 GlobalABC Annual Narrative Report
Author: GlobalABC
Region of Activities: Global
Type: Report
Origin: GlobalABC Secretariat

2020 has been an exceptional year in many ways. Due to the global pandemic, GlobalABC shifted most of its events and other activities online, starting with the GlobalABC Assembly which needed to be reconfigured at the last minute and took place entirely virtually; to dedicated sessions addressing the impacts of COVID-19 on the sector and looking at the contribution that the sector could make to build beck better if made part of recovery efforts; to several high-level events related to the UNFCCC process, also held in virtual format. Yet, GlobalABC was able to ensure outreach and member engagement. Overall, GlobalABC strengthened both, the visibility of the sector and radical collaboration across the sector’s value chain by effectively providing the collaborative platform for bringing all stakeholders together to work towards a zero-emission, efficient, and resilient buildings and construction sector. The flagship effort regarding the global and three regional roadmaps is a game changer, with the different member consortium efforts that are being rolled out to support additional regional roadmaps and national processes. With now over 150 members, GlobalABC has continued to grow our membership.
