Our aims are achieved through our three core activities:
- Training – raising awareness of the issues surrounding sustainable building practices by running training and events across the UK. These events range from half day practical workshops through to the full two-day Sustainable Building & Services training course. The Green Register also runs in-house CPD sessions for construction professionals on a wide range of topics.
- The Register – all our members have attended a training session with The Green Register, once registered, are placed on the web-based register of members. This list is available to potential clients who are looking for professionals with a demonstrated commitment to sustainable building practices.
- Networking – it is important to exchange ideas, provide mutual support and make professional connections with other disciplines – our events provide an ideal opportunity to meet other like-minded individuals and network, share ideas and information.
What is Sustainable or Green Building?
Building to green or sustainable principles is an holistic approach that addresses social, environmental and economic issues. It is not a style or fashion but an enduring set of principles that looks at all aspects of construction from site preparation through to reuse, recycling and reclamation. Sustainable building considers how the construction will affect the wellbeing of people and natural ecosystems.
