Emirates Green Building Council (EmiratesGBC) launched its brand-new initiative to encourage green building best practices, the ‘Green Building Tooltips,’ freely accessible online at: www.emiratesgbc.org

The tool provides comprehensive insights and tips for developers, building owners and residents to make their buildings ‘greener’ through simple steps for greater energy and water use efficiency

The online resource on best practices will help the construction industry and community make their built environments more sustainable, EmiratesGBC said in a press statement.

The interactive designs cover three different building typologies, showcasing a home, school and office building. The initiative is powered by BASF and Legrand, EmiratesGBC corporate members, underlining their commitment to promoting sustainability.

EmiratesGBC chairman Saeed Al Abbar said: “The new EmiratesGBC Green Building Tooltips webpage is the first and only one of its kind initiative in the region that provides valuable guidance and insights for building users and the industry to implement sustainability best practices.

“The free-to-access resources brings incredible knowledge on how to promote energy and water efficiency in built environments. We are thankful to BASF and Legrand who have eagerly supported this initiative and to the experts who contributed to this resource base,” he said.

The Tooltips cover how to enhance energy and water use efficiency, offering tips on how to keep the living environment cool, despite the harsh outside temperatures, and which areas in homes, schools and office premises can be made greener.
