Commitment and Impact

Our key aim is to impact sustainability performance through our membership body and drive industry to set, meet and reach higher sustainability targets now and in the future. In September 2014, UK-GBC launched a new Member Commitment to support our on-going work with members in the area.

The Member Commitment

Our member commitment reflects our Vision for a built environment that enables a high quality of life for people, within limits our planet can support.

As a member of the UK Green Building Council, we agree to actively support and adhere to UK-GBC’s vision for a built environment that enables a high quality of life for people, within limits our planet can support.

As part of our own contribution to UK-GBC:

  • We commit to championing UK-GBC’s vision by integrating sustainability into our business operations.
  • We will demonstrate our commitment by leading and advocating practices that are environmentally responsible, ethical and fair.
  • We will be open and transparent about our progress and share best practice with others.
