Dubai, UAE, July 3: The World Green Building Council has appointed Khaled Bushnaq as its Regional Chair for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) network, the organisation said through a Press communiqué. Bushnaq currently serves as the Vice Chairman of the Emirates Green Building Council (EmiratesGBC).

Speaking on his appointment, Bushnaq said: “It is my honour to have been chosen as the Regional Chair, and I thank World Green Building Council and Emirates Green Building Council for this recognition. The MENA region has tremendous potential to implement green building best practices, and one of the important remits of the MENA Network is to facilitate greater collaboration and partnership to promote sustainable built environments. The path-breaking achievements by EmiratesGBC in this regard will serve as a benchmark for the region.”

Terri Wills, CEO of the World Green Building Council, said: “While climate change is a global challenge, the solutions to it are often local and regional. Championing green building at these levels through our regional networks is, therefore, essential in order to deliver on our mission of green buildings for everyone, everywhere. Bushnaq has been a true champion of sustainability across MENA, and his leadership as Chair will help to strengthen the network of Green Buildings Councils in the region.”

Saeed Al Abbar, Chairman of Emirates Green Building Council, added: “The appointment of Khaled as the Regional Chair for the MENA network by the World Green Building Council, is a strong statement on his dedication to promoting sustainable built environments in the region. We congratulate Khaled on this recognition, which will further drive our work in promoting green building best practices. 

“EmiratesGBC has been at the forefront in driving transformational change in sustainable buildings, and we will continue to work with our stakeholders in promoting a green building culture across the MENA region.”
