22 August by Miriam Heale


Under a new global partnership between the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) and the World Resources Institute, led by the Building Efficiency Accelerator (BEA), green building councils are joining together with cities around the world to substantially improve energy efficiency in buildings.

The aim is to double the rate of energy efficiency by 2030 and participating green councils include; UAE, Poland, South Africa and Colombia.  Under the BEA the councils of Dubai, Warsaw, Tshwane and Bogota will work together to reach the targets.

The BEA is one of six accelerators under Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All), an initiative led by the United Nations Secretary-General, and is funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF).
