GBCI Europe Circle 2024

LEED certifications 2023 (Germany)

GGBA & GBCI Europe at Building Green Hamburg 2023


How do we create cities that benefit people and the planet? We are in the middle of a current climate and nature crisis, and the construction industry carries a huge part of the responsibility.

Our cities have the potential of becoming a viral part of the solution, and therefore it is crucial that we don’t continue ‘business as usual’ when we plan and develop the cities of the future. We have the necessary knowledge on what the planet needs, and we know human’s physical, social, and mental needs as well. It is important that we consider how to combine these needs when we develop urban cities, renovate, and construct new buildings. Therefore, Building Green Hamburg is focusing on how we can transform our cities to benefit people and planet.

At Building Green Hamburg 6-7 June 2023, you will learn which role cities can play to make a difference. You will be inspired by both German and international speakers with great insight into urban planning and knowledge on more sustainable solutions for the construction industry.

The GGBA Board of Directors and the Management of GBCI Europe look forward to welcoming you at Building Green in Hamburg.
