UKGBC’s Solutions and Innovation work has gone from strength to strength over the last financial year with the launch of our Trends in Sustainable Solutions report and almost 100 Innovative Start Up members. To grow this work, UKGBC has expanded our Solutions and Innovation Advisory Scheme, today announcing new experts from across the industry who have joined the group.

This scheme seeks to:

  • Review new solutions  for inclusion in the Solutions Library to ensure their quality and appropriateness to UKGBC’s mission and membership base.
  • Provide market insight and solution development advice to UKGBC’s Innovative Start-Up members to help them refine their value proposition.

The individuals come from a wide range of sub-sectors and have a diverse knowledge base, with many having worked with UKGBC for several years. Some are from innovative start-ups, whereas others are from larger businesses and organisations that are looking to work with or develop solutions and innovations in our industry. This means the group’s members are perfectly placed to work closely with our team and help shape our work in this area moving forward.
