The Green Building Council Finland was established 19th of March 2010. FIGBC is a non-profit organization aimed at promoting sustainable construction – i.e. construction activities that are cost-effective and environmentally-friendly. FIGBC will take part in developing and initializing the procedures, tools and classification systems for sustainable development.
World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) is a union of national councils that provides leadership and a global forum to accelerate market transformation from traditional, inefficient building practices to new generation high-performance buildings. This is a critical response strategy for cities and countries worldwide to their national and international commitments to reduce carbon emissions and redress other environmental impacts. FIGB aims to become a member of the international Green Building Council network later this year.
