Join the fight against climate change by supporting World Green Building Week activities.

This Mon., September 25, kicks off World Green Building Week (WGBW), an annual event that highlights the role buildings play in the fight against climate change. USGBC is again partnering with the World Green Building Council to amplify the work being done to deliver sustainable and vibrant buildings and communities around the globe.

This year’s theme, “Our Hero is Zero,” reiterates the goal of making all buildings net zero by 2050. Together, we can change the perception that buildings are roadblocks to progress on climate change, and empower the global community to recognize the potential buildings have to reduce carbon emissions.

Follow USGBC on Twitter for the latest news throughout the week, and check out these quick tips for getting involved:

  • Join the conversation with #OurHeroIsZero and #WGBW17.
  • Donate a social post to the WGBW Thunderclap, which is set for Mon., September 25 at 9 a.m. EDT.
  • Add entries to the WGBW Action Map to show your support.

Net zero buildings are made possible by using clean, locally generated energy and making every building—family homes, offices, retail shops, theaters and arenas—more energy-efficient. Achieving this 2050 goal will take collaboration, and more than 70 green building councils and thousands of member companies around the world are participating in next week’s events.

Join the global community in making green buildings more accessible to everyone.
