What we do
We inspire, challenge and empower our members, helping them to identify and adopt the most sustainable, viable solutions. We also engage our members in advocating a progressive message to government, informing and influencing green building policy.
We aim to influence and inform Government policy: through our Campaigns and Policy work.
