Penn State’s Global Building Network facilitates evidence to action through global partnerships and network-to-network connections to accelerate decarbonization of the built environment at scale. It was created after Penn State was asked by the United Nations to lead a global network to advance building science, construction processes and building management. The network supports an international framework that will make buildings more sustainable, more efficient and healthier to live and work in through research, education, and outreach. See the Global Building Network website for report on progress.
