EmiratesGBC congress focus on innovation
Dubai, October 25, 2012
Emirates Green Building Council (EmiratesGBC), an independent forum aimed at conserving the environment by strengthening and promoting green building practices, will host its first annual congress next month.
The two-day event, on November 27 and 28, at Grand Hyatt Dubai, will focus on sustainable practices and innovations in the Middle East.
On the first day, representatives from several government bodies and thought leaders from all over the world will address the congress on the region’s critical sustainability topics and relate them to the global green building movement.
On the second day, EmiratesGBC will host its annual general meeting, which is open exclusively for members and will be followed by a series of afternoon workshops for delegates.
Adnan Sharafi, EmiratesGBC chairman, said: “The Annual Emirates Green Building Council Congress is a landmark initiative to foster industry dialogue and multiple stakeholder engagement in promoting sustainable building development. The latest insights from the supply chain sector, to be shared by the foremost thinkers in the field from around the world, will further support our objective of developing and promoting best practices in sustainable development in the region.”
The interactive discussions at the Congress will place emphasis on the theme, ‘Innovations in Sustainability,’ where experts from local and regional organisations will discuss new innovations in the construction sector and share case studies.
Several panel sessions will be held throughout the day to debate on topics such as the role of sustainability rating systems globally and the driving force behind radical sustainable innovations. Case studies on the UAE and the Mena region’s experience in sustainable development will also be presented. The first day will conclude with a gala dinner.
The Annual General Meeting will review the Council’s accomplishments and future plans to reinforce its goals of driving the UAE’s green vision. As part of its objectives to strengthen awareness on promoting sustainable built environments, several workshops to share best practices in the industry, will be conducted by industry experts from both public and private entities. – TradeArabia News Service
