Green building council plans built environment carbon database.


Towards fostering sustainable urban transformation, the Green Building Council Nigeria (GBCN) plans to establish Nigeria Built Environment Carbon Database (NBECD}, which will allow built environment practitioners and stakeholders to respond to the imperatives of decarbonisation.

GBCN President, Mr. Danjuma Waniko, who announced this at the Council's meeting with partners and stakeholders in Lagos, said the carbon database is being developed using locally-sourced data, which will account for local conditions and practices, as well as provide robust and contextual data for project carbon accounting.
Waniko said the mission is to advance green building practice in urban sustainability in Nigeria and get feedback from stakeholders on how to collaborate and work together. The meeting brought together key players in the sustainable building and environment sector, including government representatives, industry leaders, and environmental advocates.
