Join the green building movement and enjoy a host of benefits including increased profile, discounts, high-level networking and the knowledge that you are playing your part in changing the way South Africa is built.
As a member of the Green Building Council SA, your company will play a critical role in transforming the South African built environment. You will become part of our network of industry leaders and pioneers, collectively championing the green building cause and accelerating the development and adoption of best practices.
Reducing negative impact on the environment is one of the key measures of good corporate governance. From the King Commission to the Global Reporting Initiative and the carbon credit market, if sustainability is not on the boardroom agenda future markets and profits are at risk. Green building practices play a significant role in embedding sustainability into your business’s strategic imperatives and long-term focus.
Membership communicates your organisation’s commitment to green building practices and demonstrates your green credentials to clients, investors and partners.
