Solution 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.

The solutions we are looking for:

  • Could be from anywhere around the world.
  • Must be possible to pilot or implement more widely now (we are not looking for hypothetical ideas and concepts)
  • Don’t need to be ‘new’ and could be a novel application of an old product or principle.
  • Could be a technology or product, but also a service, a process, an operating or financial model, or government policy or regulation.
  • Could be part of a bigger picture suite of solutions that come together to solve a challenge.
  • Must be best practice in its particular use cases.
  • Must address a challenge relevant to one or more of our impact areas and not have any negative effects on other impact areas.
