    31 December 2019

    Greenbuild China returned to Shanghai for a third time, with more than 900 delegates attending the event at W Shanghai The Bund on October 24-24. Hosted by the United States Green Building Council the event saw the latest in green building products, technologies and innovations, including presentations by 86 speakers from around the world.

    Council chief executive Mahesh Ramanujam told the conference: “The heart of the global green building community’s efforts must go well beyond buildings. Our focus must be on human beings because the standards we are most committed to raising is that of the quality of life itself, for every member of this community, and in populations spanning every corner of the planet.”

    Among the themes of this year’s event were Toward Net Zero, Green Buildings and Cities in 2050 and Sustainable Living: Production, Consumption and Lifestyle. These topics were the cornerstone of 31 education sessions in sessions on low carbon cities, cost-benefit analysis of green buildings, smarter and greener buildings, and climate-resilient design.

    According to the data released by USGBC, as of September, North Asia had more than 5,300 LEED-registered projects and 2,200 certified projects, totalling more than 310 million m2.
