UK Green Building Council

Description

The UK Green Building Council is an industry led, independent, not for profit, membership based organisation to which the Founding Members have made a substantial, long term, commitment. The Council's mission is to dramatically improve the sustainability of the built environment by radically transforming the way it is planned, designed, constructed, maintained and operated. In the UK buildings are major consumers of energy, water and materials and have a significant effect on the environment and also on the health and productivity of their occupiers. They account for around 50% of total greenhouse gas emissions, with the production of materials accounting for a further 10%. Similarly, infrastructure construction and renewal have major environmental impacts and make significant demands on natural resources.
