Energy-efficient buildings help us save energy and money. They are also more comfortable to be in and better for the climate as they emit less greenhouse gas emissions. In short, advancing green buildings will be critical to achieving the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals.

We know WHY we should green our buildings but HOW can we do it in practice? Which sectors have the largest potential for emissions reductions? How can buildings professionals implement energy efficiency measures in all phases of their work? How much does it cost?  

The Programme for Energy Efficiency in Buildings (PEEB) has produced a series of technical guides targeting key sectors in its partner countries: Hospitalshotels and residential buildings. These guides give concrete advice on how to make our buildings greener, based on a deep-dive into specific countries’ realities.

In the coming months, a series of Expert Dialogues will explain how to make buildings green in these key sectors. The events will present good practices and technical advice from the technical guides that can be scaled up and replicated elsewhere. Organized by PEEB in collaboration with the Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction, the expert talks share experiences with professionals to help them plan and implement energy-efficiency in buildings everywhere in the world.

The dialogues are conceived to be a dialogue to provide inputs and give room for discussion, from public and private sector experts and practitioners, from planners to architects, from national officials to investors, from facilities’ managers to professional associations.

Part I. How can we make hospitals green? (Webinar in French)
PEEB Expert Dialogue on how to improve energy efficiency in key health buildings

18 May 2022, 2-3 PM Tunis (GMT+1), 3-4 PM Paris/Bonn (GMT+2)

Human health needs sustainable buildings: by ensuring good indoor comfort and "Cooling for All", green building improves the well-being of patients and the working conditions of medical staff. As temperatures rise, health infrastructures must become more resilient to heat, both in urban and rural areas. Continuity of cold chains is essential to ensure our health security, especially for the transport and storage of vaccines and medical products.
