The Singapore Green Building Week is set to foster conversations in Southeast Asia’s green building industry, drawing more than 10,000 participants from over 30 countries.
Fast becoming a global model for sustainability, the Singapore Green Building Week (SGBW) 2014 is set to see the coming together of governments and businesses globally to network and achieve both economic growth and a greener living environment.
Bringing together two mega events in a single location, the sixth edition of SGBW is expected to draw more than 10,000 participants from over 30 counties and will run from 1 – 7 September 2014.
As part of Singapore Green Building Week, the Building and Construction Authority of Singapore (BCA), in partnership with Reed Exhibitions, will host the International Green Building Conference (IGBC), alongside Build Eco Xpo (BEX) Asia. The events will run from 1 – 3 September 2014 at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre in Singapore.
“Much has been achieved over the past six years since we launched the first Singapore Green Building Week. From 17 green building projects to more than 2,000 in nine years is quite an achievement not just for BCA, but for the entire built environment sector comprising developers, architects, engineers, green building professionals, solution providers, and so on.
Together, we developed Singapore’s green building footprint to where it is today, with more than 62 million m2 of green Gross Floor Area (or more than 25 % of the total Gross Floor Area) in Singapore. However, the work continues as climate change is a global issue. To further the green agenda – not just in Singapore, but across the region, newsmakers and experts will be convening at this year’s IGBC, which will provide the platform for discourse and exchange on the concerted effort to lead, engage and sustain the push towards a greener and more sustainable built environment for all,” said Dr John Keung, CEO of BCA.
