Our mission is to radically improve the sustainability of the built environment, by transforming the way it is planned, designed, constructed, maintained and operated.

We are concerned with homes and non-domestic buildings – new and existing – as well as the infrastructure that binds the built environment together.

Launched in 2007 to offer clarity, cohesion and leadership to a disparate sector, we bring together anyone involved in the complex process of planning, designing, constructing, maintaining and operating buildings. A registered charity, we work with our members – who are mostly businesses, but also not-for-profit organizations, government agencies and academic institutions – to enable them to truly embed sustainability in their business practices.
