The Building To COP Coalition is a group of organizations catalyzing climate action in cities, regions, and the built environment. And work closely with the UN High-Level Climate Champions.

Buildings are responsible for almost 40% of global energy-related carbon emissions and 50% of all extracted materials.

The building and construction sector’s demand for natural resources accelerates climate change, and inefficient, unhealthy buildings negatively impact human health and wellbeing. Join us to learn how we can accelerate climate solutions through sustainable built environments in the Middle East & Africa.
