In our “Ambitions for 2027” strategy we committed to “develop and maintain active UKGBC networks in every region”. Our 2018-19 plan provided the foundation for this ambition. This represents a major strategic development for UKGBC, and is designed to reinforce and support a number of long-term objectives:

  • Raise awareness of sustainability amongst all built environment professionals
  • Grow our membership to be fully representative of the entire built environment sector
  • Deepen and strengthen our members’ engagement with UKGBC activities
  • Strengthening the relationship between industry and local government
  • Driving stretching sustainability standards and best practice in cities and on major projects

Events and activities in Birmingham, Bristol, London and Manchester are a mixture of core UKGBC content (policy, research, education) accessible locally, and locally driven content specific to the given city-region. All events appear on the central UKGBC events page.

To support this plan, we have appointed part-time Local Network Coordinators in each city-region, thanks to the generous support of members Chetwoods, Hoare Lea & Cundall who have seconded locally-based staff. This means, for the first time, UKGBC has dedicated capacity outside London.
