Why do members join UKGBC?
UKGBC membership and climate action
All members of UKGBC must show commitment towards achieving a global transition to net zero.
In May 2021, as part of our role as an official Accelerator of the UNFCCC-backed Race to Zero campaign, we introduced the following requirements of membership:
- All UKGBC members must, at minimum, (at the head-of-organisational level) commit to taking action that contributes to limiting global warming to 1.5C by 2050.
- All members are strongly encouraged to align their commitment with the Race to Zero criteria and to formally join the campaign through one of its Partner Initiatives.
- UKGBC Gold Leaf members are required to formally join the Race to Zero campaign and align their activities with its criteria.
