Themed “Build Green: The Next Decade”, IGBC 2016 signifies new hopes, aspirations for the green building journey in the next decade, albeit mitigating climate change.

The historic Paris landmark agreement signed by 195 nations at COP 21 on 12 Dec 2015 marked a defining point in our era towards taking action on climate change mitigation, collectively committing to a common goal of limiting global warming to below 2 degrees Celsius. Singapore will continue to play her part in the global community, by pledging to reduce emission intensity by 36% from 2005 levels, by 2030, and to stabilise emissions with the aim of peaking around 2030. Climate change mitigation and environmental sustainability have become imperative for all stakeholders to grapple with for survival. We would need to invest more time and resources to mitigate and adapt to climate change before it is too late. Translating key policies into action will be crucial for the next decade and beyond.

Empowerment will be key. Our community must join us in driving sustainability. As never before, IGBC 2016 will tap into the power of community through building bridges and harness the inspiration of collective vision and action. A platform for all stakeholders, IGBC 2016 will envision what the next decade could behold and serve as an avenue for collaborative sharing of ideas, to widen the possibilities and our imagination of green buildings as a part of the built environment, and co-existing with our natural environment.

Themed “Build Green: The Next Decade”, the International Green Building Conference (IGBC) 2016 hopes to inspire and catalyse new thinking, collaborations and partnerships as well as new innovative and integrated/ holistic solutions to climate change. Technology will continue to disrupt and cross-cut every dimension of our lives. IGBC 2016 will strive to accelerate this transformative evolution of our green building movement to shape a sustainable future for generations to come.
