Who we are

The New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC) is a not-for-profit, industry organisation. Our vision is that New Zealanders live, work and play in healthy, efficient and productive buildings in a sustainable built environment.

We do this through:

Promoting the benefits of sustainable buildings by creating a common language and demonstrating the value.

Assisting the property and construction sector to acquire the skills and knowledge to be able to deliver a sustainable built environment.

Motivating and rewarding the sustainable development and operation of buildings across New Zealand.

The NZGBC was established in July 2005 and in 2006 became a member of the World Green Building Council (WGBC). The WGBC is an international not-for-profit organisation that aims to move the global property industry and built environment towards sustainability, with Green Building Councils being established in various countries around the world.

NZGBC is also a member of the Construction Industry Council.

The Council exists to:

promote the interests of the broader construction industry to central government

create conditions in which the sector can prosper and work together for the general good.
