The development of sustainability in the Middle East requires a real push towards financial incentive, enforced energy efficiency requirements and sustainable design knowledge.
With more than 40 per cent of carbon emissions said to come from occupied buildings, there is a pressing need for the region's construction industry to step up on sustainability and international and regional experts are keen to help drive the process forward.
Andy White, event director for The Big 5 the region's leading event for the building and construction industry said: "What was once a 'buzz' word in the boardroom is now commonplace. The need for products and solutions that make the construction process more efficient, economically and environmentally, has meant the platforms we have created to showcase this have grown significantly to encompass every element of the event – from the conference, the exhibition as well as the increasing popularity of our environmental recognition programme, the GAIA Awards.
Internationally acclaimed experts from across the world will be taking part in a series of discussions and presentations on the challenges and solutions for sustainable development in the Middle East. The Green Build Congress will provide a platform for knowledge share and debate on a number of topics related to environmental impact. With never seen before presentations from a variety of world-class specialists.
The conference will take place as one vision day, dedicated to the sharing of international perspectives, insight from experts on the drivers for change and challenges being faced, and then two action days. The action days will encourage delegates to get practical with case study examples, strategic approaches and how challenges have been overcome.
Andrew Olszewski, director of International Urban Strategies will be presenting on 'Transforming Urban Environments to Create Economically Successful, Livable, Sustainable Communities.'
The Green Build Congress hopes to encourage this opportunity through the benchmarking of international best practice and access to proven solutions, which will include, a case study from the UK on the route to mass market zero carbon homes from John Tebbit, industry affairs director from the Construction Products Association.
