The Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) is dedicated to improving Florida’s built environment through verified green certification standards for homes, land developments, commercial buildings, high rises, and city and county governments.
Standards that take a scientific approach and are developed with state-specific criteria. They address Florida’s hot-humid environment, distinctive topography, unique geology, resiliency, and natural disasters.
In 2000, the non-profit FGBC brought together industry professionals from the construction, government, academic and research communities to create green standards with a mission “to provide a statewide green building program that defines, promotes, and encourages sustainable efforts with environmental and economic benefits.”
Every day FGBC helps advance construction and spaces that are better for the environment and healthier for Floridians to live, work and play in.
Through education, community outreach and continuous collaboration to implement practical and measurable green certification standards, FGBC remains the key driving force in our state’s green building sector.
A 501©3 corporation, FGBC is a membership-based organization governed by a Board of Directors and corporate officers who are elected by the general membership.
