EmiratesGBC and French Business Council in Dubai host green innovation event
Emirates Green Building Council (EmiratesGBC), an independent forum aimed at conserving the environment by strengthening and promoting green building practices, joined hands with the French Business Council in Dubai to host a green innovation event on December 14, 2014.
The event, targeting suppliers in the green building and energy efficiency industry, hosted over 20 organisations involved in the green building industry to showcase their green innovations.
Local industry stakeholders, such as consultants, developers, institutions, government bodies and contractors, had the opportunity to learn more about the different innovations and how their promoters are benefitting from their implementation.

Such events play a pivotal role in the development of green projects, providing businesses across all aspects of the green building industry with a common platform to showcase their green innovations.”

EmiratesGBC has also developed a suite of activities, inclusive of networking events, technical workshops, focus days and facilitated training based around specific issues related to the built-environment that meet the needs of its members, of the UAE community, and the wider Middle East.
