Kuwait GBC partners discusses sustainable development and green buildings

KGBCThe Kuwait Green Building Council (Kuwait GBC) has partnered with the Kuwait Construction Week Conference to deliver and moderate the two-day talks on sustainability, energy efficiency and green building practices in the local industry

Moderating an array of architects, engineers and consultants from the industry, Kuwait GBC brought industry leaders and experts together, providing them with a platform to share knowledge and provoke exchange of thoughts on energy-efficient projects.

The Conference aimed at bridging the gap between the public and private sectors, raising awareness and encouraging the adoption of green building practices in Kuwait and providing insights to the conservation measures. In addition, the conference also focused on sustainable urbanisation, optimisation of energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality, tenants’ health and LEED criteria.

Khaled Al-Mashaan, chairman of Kuwait GBC, said, “We have a responsibility as organisations, companies, individuals and government authorities to develop green buildings that support an economically and socially healthier urban environment where we can make savings in the consumption of natural resources, protect the environment and ensure that the needs of future generations are also met.”

“With sustainable urbanisation becoming a core challenge today, the Kuwait Construction Week comes at the right time to deliver a conference to companies and consumers who want to contribute to sustainability and energy-efficiency in buildings,” he added.

Al-Mashaan presented the council’s long-term goals in educating about sustainable planning and development to create living spaces that have little impact on the environment, consume less resource and ensure the health, comfort and high performance of its users.
