At a time of climate and nature emergency and a cost of living crisis, the UK needs bold government leadership and policy at national, devolved and local levels to transform our buildings, towns and cities.

The built environment sector must work together at pace and scale to champion the ambitious policies that we need to deliver a zero-carbon, climate-resilient, regenerative future.

What does our policy & advocacy work look like?

As the voice of our sustainable built environment, UKGBC works across the sector to implement change in three main ways.

Using our collective voice

We utilise our collective expertise to influence the decisions that matter to our sector

Engaging with policy makers

We engage with decision-makers to shape the policies that will deliver a greener future.

Supporting our members’ advocacy

We support our members with advocacy and strategic campaigns.
