Working Together To Create a More Sustainable Florida

When you think green in Florida, remember the letters FGBC.  We’re an independent non-profit organization made up of building and environmental experts from every part of Florida.  Together, it’s our mission to provide statewide green building programs with environmental, economic and social benefits.

Since 2000, we have taken the lead in establishing Florida-specific certification standards for the built environment.  These standards apply to single-family and multi-family homes, high-rise construction, commercial buildings, land development projects, and the sustainable management and operation of our cities and counties. 

We have also become a recognized leader in providing green building education to builders, developers, architects, planners, elected officials, and many other audiences who understand the importance, value and benefits of embracing sustainable building and operational principles.  Our classes are taught by some of the most knowledgeable experts in the state who have helped us establish our certification guidelines and program.

When you work with FGBC, you are working with the most respected green building organization in the state. 

We invite you to join us and become our partner in creating a greener and more sustainable Florida.
