UKGBC Solutions Library: Case Study Submission Form

Through UKGBC’s Solutions Library we seek to identify and promote tried and tested solutions that address our sustainability impact areas – Climate Change, Resource Use, Nature & Biodiversity, Health & Wellbeing, and Socio-economic Impact. The aim is to increase awareness, adoption, and investment in these solutions across the built environment industry.

  • Must address one of UKGBC’s five impact areas.
  • Must be working towards, or have achieved, notable sustainability objective and outcomes.
  • Should showcase at least one, or several, notable solutions/ approaches (e.g. innovative technology/ product, service, process, operating/ financial model)

To submit a case study for consideration, please complete the form below or download the offline version and email it to innovation@ukgbc.org.  If your case study is included, information you submit in this form will be directly used to form content for the Library, and we will issue this to you in draft prior to publication.
