Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC)

The Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) is a nonprofit Florida corporation dedicated to improving the built environment. Our mission is “to provide a statewide green building program with environmental and economic benefits.”

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.

To access all of the features on this website, login using your membership account information or if you are not a member, create a new username and password of your choice. You will be able to access an array of information including projects, local government activity, FGBC administrative business and Florida green certification standards.
