Who are we?
The World Sustainable Building 2014 Conference is the largest meeting on a global level on sustainable building where the most important and influential international institutions, experts in this field, will meet for the first time.
The Conference, organised by Green Building Council España (GBCe), is promoted by CIB, iiSBE, UNEP-SBCI, FIDIC and counts on the participation of World GBC*. Its main goal is to encourage the uptake of adequate answers to the challenges, social and environmental, which the building sector faces. World SB14 Barcelona aims to create a global action plan which answers the main challenges that the building sector faces by achieving consensus between stakeholders, organizations and world renowned experts. Additionally, maximum participation from all countries will be encouraged, endeavouring to include different existing realities.

With a transdisciplinary view, this Conference is the point of arrival of a process that started in the year 2012 with the Regional Conferences, in different countries throughout the world, establishing new lines of common action, recognizing singularities in each field. Furthermore, the goal is to encourage integrating scientific, productive and management views; thus producing synergies between them to be used as a strategic working tool.
With the valuable cooperation and ties between organizations involved, World SB14 Barcelona proposes, for the first time, to reposition the Conference as a fresh formula that gives way to a new global reference.
