(GABC) is a voluntary, international, multi-stakeholder partnership. Its Secretariat is hosted by UN Environment. The GABC was launched by France and UN Environment at COP21. Since COP21, 24 countries and over 70 non-state actors have joined and signed a common statement to dramatically upscale action, through:
Communication: Raising awareness and engagements in order to make visible the magnitude of the opportunities and impacts in the buildings and construction sector, define sectoral climate goals and promote transparency and information exchange.
Collaboration: Further enabling actions on public policies and market transformations to achieve existing climate commitments, through implementing partnerships, sharing technology, technical expertise and know-how, and improving deal-flow and facilitate access to efficient financing and funding.
Solutions: Offering and supporting programs and locally adapted solutions to achieve climate commitments and further ambitious 'well-below 2°C path' actions.
