Why do members join UKGBC?
UKGBC membership and climate action
UKGBC became the first official Race to Zero Accelerator in early 2021. In support of our role accelerating climate action across the built environment, UKGBC requires the following of its members:
All UKGBC members :
- Must actively support the UKGBC mission to radically improve the sustainability of the built environment by transforming the way it is planned, designed, constructed, maintained, repurposed, and operated.
- Must take action to mitigate their organisation’s own contribution to climate change.
All UKGBC members are encouraged, but not required, to join the Race to Zero campaign.
UKGBC Gold Leaf members:
In addition to the above, all organisations seeking to join UKGBC as a Gold Leaf member must also be a member of the Race to Zero.
