Jordan Green Building Council (GBC)

While buildings and human activities provide countless benefits to society, they also have significant environmental and health impacts; consuming various natural resources and producing undesirable carbon emissions, did you know that the building and construction sector alone is responsible for 39% of all carbon emissions worldwide? And with the Jordanian population growing at an increasing pace over the past years, according to the World Population Review statistics the population is expected to peak at 14.15 million people in 2080, the demand for buildings is getting bigger, calling for an immediate and urgent action towards implementing the green practices in buildings and construction.

Amidst the increase of urban areas, negative impacts must be reduced or eliminated by the building’s design, construction or operation, and to create positive impacts on the climate, communities’ resilience in addition to preserving precious natural resources and improving people’s quality of life. To address such pressing issues, the Jordan Green Building Council (Jordan GBC), a non-profit and non-governmental organization and member-based association, took on its shoulders the responsibility of advocating for the adoption of green building practices and green built environment actions. With the asset of being part of a global network of more than 70 Green Building Councils, under the umbrella of the World GBC, the councils aim together to transform the built environment & its relevant markets towards sustainable development to contribute to lowering carbon emissions by 2030, and its elimination by 2050.  In addition to the preservation of natural resource by creating a circular economic model that benefits health and wellbeing, and fosters sustainable economic growth and development.
