World Green Building Council
The World Green Building Council is a network of national green building councils in more than one hundred countries, making it the world's largest international organization influencing the green building marketplace. The WorldGBCs mission is to strengthen green building councils in member countries by championing their leadership and connecting them to a network of knowledge, inspiration and practical support. Green building councils are member-based organizations that empower industry leaders to effect the transformation of the local building industry toward sustainability.
With one hundred thousand buildings and almost one billion square meters of green building space registered, the influence and impact of this global network is a significant force for social and environmental change. We foster and support new and emerging Green Building Councils by providing them with the tools and strategies to establish strong organizations and leadership positions in their countries. Since our establishment in 2002, we have been working closely with councils to promote local green building actions and address global issues such as climate change. By driving collaboration and increasing the profile of the green building market, the WorldGBC works with its member councils to ensure that green buildings are a part of any comprehensive strategy to deliver carbon emission reductions.
