UNEP-Sustainable Buildings & Climate Initiative (SBCI)
UNEP-SBCI is a partnership among major public- and private-sector building industry stakeholders (including USGBC) and the U.N. Environment Programme. Since 2006, SBCI has developed a common platform for discussing and reaching consensus on buildings and climate change issues.
In anticipation that the text of a global climate change protocol being negotiated at COP15 will recognize the importance of buildings tackling climate change, UNEP-SBCI members, partners and supporters commit to taking specifications to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of the building industry.
