The SBE series is held on held on a three-year cycle.
It places a core emphasis on peer-reviewed papers,
presentations of regional policy papers, displays of
pre-evaluated projects and a small number of highquality
commercial exhibits.
These events also provide fast-track inclusion of the
best technical papers from national/regional
conferences into the global WSBE20 event, as well
as registration policies designed to encourage the
attendance of students and delegates from
developing countries.
One or more local research-based organizations
have taken financial and organizational responsibility
for individual events while the international series
owners, iiSBE, CIB, FIDIC and UN Environment, have
given organizational advice and have used their
networks to help ensure a large multi-disciplinary
The increasingly high reputation of the series has
resulted in other research groups and organizations
holding events concurrently with SBE conferences
thereby maximizing benefits for delegates.
The SBE conference series provides delegates with
an unparalleled view into national, regional and
international sustainable building issues every three

There is an increasing emphasis on continuity,
reflected by frequent consultations with conference
organizers going back to 2000, and more emphasis
on involving the World SBE conference organizers in
the preceding national/regional SBE events.
Seventeen organizations have held, or propose to
hold, regional conferences during 2018 and 2019,
and the global Beyond 2020 event is planned for
Gothenburg in June 2020.
