The Programme for Energy Efficiency in Buildings (PEEB) will make a strong contribution to the upcoming Buildings and Climate Global Forum. This first-of-its-kind global event on buildings and climate, organized by the Government of France and the UN Environment Programme, will take place on 7-8 March 2024 at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, France.

The Forum is set to convene governments and sector leaders from across the world, including dozens of ministers responsible for building regulations and with businesses, local authorities and research. This Forum aligns with PEEB's mission to transform the building sector through sustainable design and construction, leveraging both financial support and technical expertise.

At the Forum, PEEB will showcase its expansion in 2024 with new facilities (PEEB Cool, PEEB Med, PEEB Asean), a growing number of 21 partner countries, a total budget of EUR 256 million, and the new PEEB teams across the globe. This significant growth underlines the commitment of PEEB's funders the decarbonization and resilience of the built environment. It also strengthens PEEB’s role in transforming the building sector by promoting sustainable building design and construction

At the Forum, we will share our implementation experience, connect with old and new partners and celebrate the start of this new phase. Join us in this endeavour and stay tuned for more updates from the Forum. 

Join us at events organized by PEEB or with PEEB participation and meet PEEB’s Team members (anchor to section below) who will be in person at the forum.
