The Active Building Centre today announces its participation in a coalition supporting the delivery of a Built Environment Virtual Pavilion at this November’s COP26 Climate Summit 


Virtual Pavilion

The Active Building Centre has joined a group of almost 100 organisations across the built environment sector convened by the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC).  Active Building Centre’s presence at the Virtual Pavilion will consist of seminars on technological best practice and innovative developments, as well as virtual show homes demonstrating the latest of our Active Building energy efficiency technology. The wider pavilion will serve as a global exemplar of projects and places, demonstrating the built environment sector’s efforts in its work concerning climate change and the transition to net zero.

The Active Building Centre is excited to contribute to the delivery of the Virtual Pavilion and to participate in COP26 more broadly, which align with our mission to support decarbonisation and energy efficiency across the built environment sector, using innovative smart technology to help transform the UK’s buildings.


Ron Cowley, CEO of the Active Building Centre, said:

“ABC’s mission is to drive decarbonisation of the UK’s built environment through the development and promotion of smart technology systems that deliver homes and buildings with low carbon energy at their core; by enabling them to generate, store and trade renewable energy. That’s why we’re delighted to take part in UKGBC’s Virtual Pavilion at COP26, which brings together the UK’s leaders in all these fields; of building efficiency, smart renewables and intelligent energy management.

 “Buildings contribute significantly to the UK’s carbon emissions, and collaboration across the industry will be vital in transitioning to net-zero. We’re delighted to be able to showcase our latest Active Building technology, as well as share valuable information, best practice and expertise with the summit’s attendees.”
