International Code Council Presents Solutions to Address Building Resilience and Energy Efficiency at COP27
November 10, 2022
The International Code Council, one of the largest international organization of building safety professionals and a member of the Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction (GlobalABC) will be presenting at the 27th annual Global Climate Change Conference (COP27), in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt from Nov. 6-18.
The work of the Code Council, alongside like-minded business and government networks, focused on sustainability and resilience in the built environment, is to recognize the role buildings play in the climate crisis, as well as to promote solutions to prevent additional carbon output from construction and operations of buildings, and to ensure that buildings are designed to withstand future hazards.
