Who we are



The WorldGBC is a coalition of national Green Building Councils, making it the largest international organization influencing the green building marketplace.



Our Mission



To facilitate the global transformation of the building industry towards sustainability through market driven mechanisms.



What We Do



We foster and support new and emerging Green Building Councils by providing them with the tools and strategies to establish strong organizations and leadership positions in their countries.



Since our establishment in 2002, we have been working closely with councils to advance our common interests by promoting local green building actions, to address global issues such as climate change.



By driving collaboration between international bodies and increasing the profile of the green building market, we work to ensure that green buildings are a part of any comprehensive strategy to deliver carbon emission reductions.



Our ongoing projects to further the green building agenda include:



1.    Projects: Business Case for Green Building Report, Global Green Building Trends Report, Socio-economic Rating Tool Category project, WorldGBC Government Leadership Awards



2.    Campaigns: World Green Building Week



3.    Partners: collaborating with international bodies such as C40 Sustainable Cities Initiative, UNEP-SBCI, UN-Habitat, ICLEI, WBCSD, Johnson Controls, Sustainable Buildings Alliance (SBA) and the International Union of Architects (IUA) and participation in global events such as the UN Climate Change Conferences
