The building sector is a cornerstone of national economies, a major consumer of energy and source of GHG emissions. It must therefore become the foundation for sustainable development. The GBPN harvests and shares best practices in building policies from around the world in order to accelerate the market and policy transformation required to achieve this goal.
Dr. Peter Graham has been the Technical Advisor and past Coordinator of the United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP) Sustainable Buildings and Climate Initiative where he has developed and managed many of UNEP’s key projects and publications in the building sector. He comes to the GBPN from a position as Head of Discipline for Architecture & Design at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. In these roles Peter worked closely with the public, civil, and private sectors to assist the global transition to a sustainable building and construction industry.
