Buildings and construction are responsible for 39% of global energy-related carbon emissions. World Green Building Week, taking place from September 23 to 29, this year aims to raise awareness of the carbon emissions from all stages of a building’s lifecycle. The Serbia Green Building Council (SrbGBC) is organizing the campaign for the ninth year running with a series of events and activities.

Heating, powering, and cooling buildings (in-use) contributes 28% to global energy-related carbon emissions, while 11% of these emissions refer to carbon released during the construction process and material manufacturing (embodied emissions). Themed #BuildingLife this year, World Green Building Week is seeking to explore how to create a green, healthy, and climate-resilient built environment for all.

To date, the building and construction industry’s focus has been on operational emissions and how buildings actually perform in-use.

However, in order to fully decarbonize by 2050 to keep global warming to below 1.5 degrees, the building and construction sector must also tackle embodied emissions from the entire building lifecycle, according to the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC), whose members include the Serbia Green Building Council (SrbGBC).
