About

The aim of this summit is to reduce the negative impact of real estate projects on the environment whilst conserving natural resources. To have the desired impact, projects must be designed to maximize energy saving and minimize construction costs by using less energy and water.

Ghana has great potential to implement and benefit from a well-developed green built environment. In the near future, greenness will rank far higher on purchase and letting decisions of prospective property owners.

Real estate and marketing consultant Cyril Nii Ayitey Tetteh, birthed the idea for the summit after realizing  a gap in the thought leadership space - a need to spark conversation on the opportunities and challenges in Ghana's green built environment.

 

With the inaugural even far exceeding expectations, key stakeholders engaged participants and made recommendations that would create a conducive environment to support green building in Ghana. The sensitization took the shape of presentations, demonstrations, panel discussions and Q&A segments.

 
 

GGBS 2022 - Hybrid

The Annual Ghana Green Building Summit (GGBS) was created in 2017 to evaluate Ghana’s green  building needs and tailor local solutions in design, finance, and policy.

In the past four editions,  prior speakers have included ministers of state, policy makers, international development agencies, industry experts and professional associations. GGBS was awarded the Green Event of The Year at  the 2019 Ghana Property Awards.

We have engaged 2,000+ stakeholders from 50+ countries and created allied interventions like  the Green Living Dialogues. 

Why a hybrid summit?

The saying “never waste a good crises” best applies to our 2020 virtual edition, which though borne out of the COVID-19 pandemic, showed us that we could expand our outreach virtually.

 

What was intended to be a Ghanaian and to some extent an African event extended far and beyond Africa as we were joined by attendees from as far as Australia through Japan, Bangladesh, Canada, USA to Zanzibar, a total of 27 countries joined the Summit in 2020.

 

So, while we are now better equipped to manage an in-person event through stringent COVID 19 protocols, we will combine that with streaming to our international audience in our first hybrid event, offering a delightful experience to both audiences.

2022 Theme

Over the past four editions, GGBS has dedicated each year to a particular element of green buildings with material, design, and operations management  being the themes for the past  three editions respectively. 

Our interest, this year, is to carve conversation points around issues that resonate with our audience while offering practical solutions. We place a great deal of value on the feedback from our patrons and two concerns have stood out. While awareness and interest has been stirred, with private individuals and corporates looking to go green, affordability and other community issues like absence of green social spaces, reliable transportation, robust infrastructure, increased traffic, and pollution have been some of impediments to the holistic development of green buildings and creation of livable cities.

 

Providing practical solutions is what inspired this year’s theme: Re-imagining affordable housing and livable cities through green solutions.
