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 2020 - Virtual
The Summit was created in 2017 to evaluate Ghana’s Green Building needs and tailor local solutions in design, finance and policy. There have been two immensely successful previous editions that created public awareness and attracted key stakeholders including ministers of state, policy makers, international development agencies, and industry experts and professionals associations.
Why a virtual summit?
We are pleased to announce that the 3rd Ghana Green Building Summit has been adapted into a virtual summit, taking place online only. This alternative to a large public gathering has been necessitated to observe safety protocols in place to fight against the global pandemic, COVID-19.
Whilst we value relationships and networking in person, we also believe that this situation presents an opportunity to explore other points of engagement, for the present and future.
What are the themes?
The COVID-19 pandemic has given an opportunity to reflect and reassess our living and work spaces and
whilst green building has always had a wellness angle, its significance especially this year cannot be
overemphasized. The main theme is:
BEYOND COVID -19 – Is a pandemic proof architecture a reality?
This theme contains sub themes of – Design, Certification, Finance, and Sustainable Cities.
The Future of Design - How work, leisure and living spaces can be designed to be pandemic resilient with special focus on public spaces, hospitality, retail and commercial as well as residential.

Green to Gold - Why a push for certification beyond meeting basic Green standards and regulations will be the new marketing gold.
