UK Green Building Council

UKGBC is uniting the UK building industry using sustainability as a catalyst to positively transform the places people use every day. A charity with over 400 member organisations spanning the entire sector, we represent the voice of the industry’s current and future leaders who are striving for transformational change. UKGBC was launched by the construction and property industry at the Ecobuild exhibition in London in February 2007. We were originally established to offer clarity, cohesion and leadership to a disparate sector, and to campaign for a sustainable built environment. We were set up with the invaluable help and commitment of a core group of founding members many of whom are still active members today.
