The Green Building Solutions Awards,
showcasing sustainable construction

The Green Building Solutions Awards are an international competition run by the Construction21 network. Each year they reward professionals who built exemplary buildings with solutions that contribute to the fight against climate change.

To apply to the contest, professionals directly publish their case studies on one of the Construction21 platforms. With the powerful media that Construction21 is, these exemplary buildings will be seen by a million of professionals over the year 2016, in all Construction21 countries and across the world.

An exceptional event linked to the Climate Conferences

In 2015, the awards ceremony took place during the COP21 in Paris, on December 3rd. The 2016 edition of the contest will award the winners during the COP21 in Marrakech, Morocco.
