FGBC Unveils Names of Its Top 15 Home Builders
Environmentally Conscious Builders to Be Recognized
At GreenTrends Conference, Nov. 12-13 in Orlando

The Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) has announced it selected the state’s top 15 builders of sustainable homes to honor as part of the group’s 15th anniversary celebration.

“These builders are being recognized for their conscientious green building efforts in creating healthier and safer homes and a more sustainable Florida,” said Suzanne Cook, executive director of FGBC.  “As FGBC marks its 15th anniversary, we're pleased to salute their contributions to creating more resilient communities and protecting Florida’s natural resources.”

FGBC certified homes complete a technically rigorous building assessment and construction process to promote design and construction practices that reduce the negative environmental impacts of the building, improve occupant health and well-being, and reduce operating costs for the owner. 

The Top 15 builders, selected based on the number of FGBC certifications, will be recognized at GreenTrends, the annual two-day conference that brings together green building industry leaders throughout the state to shape policies and practices for the industry. The 2015 GreenTrends Conference will be held November 12-13 in Orlando.

FGBC Background and Mission

The Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) is a nonprofit 501(C)3 Florida corporation dedicated to improving the built environment. Our mission is to lead and promote sustainability with environmental, economic, and social benefits through regional education and certification programs.

FGBC was conceived and founded in the belief that green building programs will be most successful if there are clear and meaningful principles on which "green" qualification and marketing are based. We are a membership-based organization governed by a Board of Directors and corporate officers who are elected by the general membership.

The FGBC is continually finding new and innovative ways to educate builders, developers, local governments, and consumers about how to achieve a healthier, more environmentally sustainable future.

The purposes of the Florida Green Building Coalition are:


2004 - Sustainable Florida 'Best Practices' Award
2013 - American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) and the Alliance for Water Efficiency (AWE) Exemplary Water-Energy Program
