About us and membership

Welcome to the New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC) membership page. We work in partnership with our membership organisations, a community of progressive businesses from all aspects of the building and property industry, with an aim to accelerate the development and adoption of market-based green building practices. Membership provides an opportunity to update on how others are leading, case studies, insight on new tools, market updates, reductions in ratings and training costs. You also join the movement for better healthier buildings in New Zealand. Finally, and importantly, members help steer what the sector needs and how we deliver our services.

With a stable membership of over 500 organisations, the NZGBC enjoys the support of some of the most influential companies in the New Zealand property and construction sector.
