Work to influence policy and regulation in the advancement of sustainable built environment Capacity build the community towards green building principles applicable to the region. provide networking opportunities, technical workshops and conferences for member and non members. act as a conduit between members and non members looking for support, services and products in relation to the built environment. Provide the link between international Green Building movements and the local industry.
Emirates Green Building Council What is a Green Building? It does NOT have to be green in colour be Zero Carbon have a closely controlled environment have an integrated transport solution be on brown-field site be powered by renewables recycle its water have zero waste / pollution be extremely innovative
Emirates Green Building Council Green Buildings are designed to respect the planet’s resources without compromising the quality of life in and around the building whilst being affordable to the target income group

by 2030 60% of the world’s population will be living in cities…… GLOBAL URBANISATION The Issues rapid pace is forcing compromise exacerbated by population / standard of living increase complex design relationships very few urban sustainable successes no advanced holistic design tools
Materials 60% of all materials globally go into the construction industry The Future more recycling more sustainable stewardship schemes carbon labelling alternative and innovative materials material efficient design more local manufacture all deleterious materials banned global databases
The Future more better recycling innovative demand reduction more and innovative desalination integrated grey & black water recycling sea water WC flushing new irrigation strategies Water over 60% of the earth’s population will face a water shortage
Transport 25% of all energy used is by transportation The Future integrated public transport solutions higher density development close to hubs fewer automobile miles low carbon emission solutions alternative fuels ‘product mile’ schemes more cycling / walking more congestion charging / taxation
Buildings 50% of all energy and 30% of all water generated globally is consumed by buildings The Future low emission design solutions intelligent living building solutions low water design solutions higher density and more mixed use better public transport connectivity socially superior more local materials more durable more recyclable more refurbishment inclusively designed automated parking improved indoor environmental quality more integrated renewables lower embodied carbon
The Future self sustaining communities more ‘heart & soul’ higher densities with transportation hubs integrated transport solutions low carbon infrastructure more urban renewables ‘total process’ recycling hubs better bio-diversity & ecological solutions vertical farming more ‘green – blue’ structures more secure inclusively designed more urban regeneration less pollution Developments Even though buildings are becoming ‘greener’ the ecological footprint of large developments and cities continues to increase
BEAMs and Legislation The Future increased BEAM popularity some compulsory BEAMs development of DEAMs more & increasingly complex building control legislation carbon emission capping & and trading building / development labelling renewables proportion fixing Courtesy of Atkins

It does not have to cost more to construct It is not too difficult
It makes economic sense It makes sense for our planet It makes sense for our future
