Jordan Green Building Council (GBC)

The building and construction sector is responsible for 39% of all carbon emissions worldwide, with operational emissions (from energy used to heat, cool and light buildings) accounting for 28%. The remaining 11% comes from embodied carbon emissions that are associated with materials and construction processes throughout the whole building lifecycle. With the Jordanian population growing 87% by over a decade, and the capital’s population increasing at an annual rate of approximately 2.5%, the demand for buildings is higher than ever calling for immediate and urgent action towards implementing the concept of green buildings and the green built environment.

Amidst the increase of urban areas, negative impacts must be reduced or eliminated by the building’s design, construction or operation, and to create positive impacts on the climate and natural environment in addition to preserving precious natural resources and improving people’s quality of life. To address such issues, the Jordan Green Building Council (Jordan GBC), a non-profit and non-governmental organization and member-based association, took on its shoulders the responsibility of promoting awareness and advocating for the adoption of Green Building Practices and Green Built Environment actions. With the asset of being part of a global network of 73 Green Building Councils, under the umbrella of the World GBC, the councils aim together to transform the built environment towards sustainability and to reach 40% less carbon emissions by 2030, and its elimination by 2050. In addition to the natural resource preservation and the creation of co-benefits including improved health and wellbeing, a strong and fair society, and a prosperous economy by championing local and global
leadership and empowering communities to drive change.

The Jordan GBC drives such change by providing internationally certified training programs, and generating sustainable project and business opportunities for its members to be a part of. Furthermore, the Jordan GBC provides a powerful, collaborative platform of active members and partners on a local, regional and international level; who share interests and encounter similar challenges and opportunities in the green buildings sector. This platform enables networking opportunities, maximizes business, exchanges knowledge, and generates new ideas to achieve results faster and more effectively, allowing members to be at the frontline across all segments of the building sector, for a green and sustainable industry and economy.

Vision: A healthy, sustainable and resource efficient environment that is affordable and available to all individuals and local communities.
Mission: To increase and spread awareness about the green built environment, by encouraging the adoption of green concepts and practices through planning, designing and developing the green built environment in Jordan.

Values: To recognize healthy and sustainable environment as a human right because of its positive impact on human life and effective improvements in society, culture and economy.
