GBCSA / Advocate & Events


The truth is that the built environment sector contributes to global warming. The GBCSA uses advocacy as a means to create strategic partnerships which are positioned to reduce this contribution, and engage in sustainability on a social and environmental level. Our advocacy platforms are through:

Annual Convention

Begun in 2007, today the Annual Convention draws thousands of sustainability professionals each year to learn from leading sector experts, network and take advantage of collaboration opportunities.
