THE GREEN BUilding Innovation Program

In the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN), buildings account for approximately 25% of the region’s total final energy consumption and energy-related CO2 emissions, which are projected to grow significantly with continued economic development, urbanization and population growth. It is important to rethink and improve the conventional methods cities and buildings are designed, built, retrofitted, and maintained. The overall goal of the program is to help train a new generation of ASEAN urban planners, architects, and engineers in the latest methodologies, techniques, materials, and architectural designs to improve the air quality inside and outside of buildings, reduce the full lifecycle carbon footprint of the building and construction sector, and improve building siting and resilience to better adapt to climate impacts.
