Coming together for a low-carbon and climate-resilient future

Coming together for a low-carbon and climate-resilient future

International Built Environment Week (IBEW) 2020

The annual IBEW will be a complimentary event this year, starting on 1 September 2020 through to 30 September 2020.

Dr Ho Nyok Yong, president of Singapore Green Building Council, shared, “It is that time of the year again when we come together to celebrate built environment innovation and sustainability, to take stock of what has been done and also to have meaningful discourse on how to go forward.

“Although the global pandemic has halted most – if not all – of the activities that we have become so accustomed to, the swift and successful pivoting of the traditionally in-person mega-event to a fully digital experience is sound testament to the resilience and resourcefulness of the built environment sector. It also highlights the importance of close collaboration and mutual cooperation as we push to overcome the pandemic before moving towards a green economy and more sustainable growth.

IBEW 2020 promises to be exciting, engaging and insightful with the vast array of virtual events and online activities laid out.

“Although we are in challenging times, we have a great opportunity to communicate to the entire world the importance of the built environment in keeping our families healthy and safe, to help our businesses identify new opportunities and for our communities to adapt to changes.
