25 February 2011 – The board of the World Green Building Council is scheduled to meet in Melbourne on Sunday, ahead of the Green Cities 2011 conference.

Key issues for discussion are four strategic priorities for 2011: creating a global common language for green building; building a strong global GBC community; increasing the profile of the green building movement; demonstrating the value of green building to governments.

WorldGBC chairman Tony Arnel said McGraw Hill Construction expected green building to jump from 13 per cent of global construction firms’ commitment to about half by 2013.”
