|UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC) is a charitable membership organisation, campaigning for sustainability in the built environment. UK-GBC brings together businesses from across the lifecycle of the construction and property sector, along with NGOs and government agencies to share knowledge on green building. 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 believe that green building can help provide a higher quality of life and better value for business and that sustainability can be compatible with profitability.

|The Great British Refurb Campaign wants to make it easier for everyone to live in a low-carbon home that is cheaper to run and more comfortable to live in. To that end, we are calling on: the UK Government to support people who want to do a low-carbon home refurb, but can’t afford the upfront costs, by offering incentives and innovative repayment schemes; to ensure local trades people are suitably skilled to undertake this work and for people to get interested, engaged and involved with the issue.
