OUR GOAL

We aim to tackle the climate emergency by decarbonising one of the earth’s most significant carbon pollution sources – the building sector.

We do this by forming powerful coalitions that bring together the right people in the right locations to deliver maximum impact.

Together, we’re building a healthier, more sustainable world.

ABOUT

As the climate crisis worsens we find ourselves building a Paris every month; a Japan every year. Simply communicating ‘best-practice’ isn’t enough.

In order to truly change the way we build, it’s time to combine global insights with local action.

We’ve taken everything that we were — our intellectual capital, our experience, analysis, evidence, our network and applied it to making change happen.

Our local focus has become even more apparent. Our network of experts have become powerful coalitions for change. GBPN has adapted from think tank to policy reformer.

We now have an unprecedented opportunity to influence positive change on a massive scale

Our human building footprint is exploding. By 2050 there will be 280 billion m2 more buildings than today — primarily in Asia.

Collectively, India, Indonesia and S.E. Asian countries are already among the largest sources of building sector greenhouse emissions. 

To take advantage of this opportunity, GBPN aims to collaboratively reform energy regulations and housing policy, focusing on the regions where we will have the biggest impact.

GBPN Our story focus

MAKING AN IMPACT

The way we build has to change — but change can’t happen without the right people.

That’s why GBPN works differently. We bring together the right voices at a local level, combined with our 15 years of global knowledge and insights to form powerful coalitions. 

Together, we support government and industry with tools and resources so they can lead the way in transforming policy and delivering best practice solutions. 

And we know it works because our projects are already making a difference on the front line in countries like Indonesia, Cambodia and India.
