Key outcomes of the Task Group

The Measurement and Reporting Task Group launched the final report Organisational Measurement and Reporting on 9 July 2008.

The Task Group recommendations were as follows:

  1. The UK-GBC play an active role in promoting organisational sustainability measurement and reporting 
  2. The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Framework is adopted as the common international organisational sustainability reporting standard (for the built environment sector) 
  3. Greater coordination and collaboration between sectors, measurement frameworks and tool providers is required to drive sustainability performance improvement

Following the Task Group recommendations the UK-GBC contributed towards the development of a GRI Construction Real Estate Sector Supplement, this was launched in October 2011.

The Green Building Guidance Task Group is also taking forward these recommendations, around promoting meaurement and reporting as well as greater collaboration within the industry.
