The UK Sustainability Council’s mission is to accelerate the rapid uptake of sustainability across the UK real estate industry, to provide commoditisation and to remove barriers so everyone can implement sustainable practice in all aspects of their work. Our programme this year will be considered around four main areas of focus: existing buildings, overlaying building performance with productivity, social cohesion and climate resilience.
Who we are
We are investors, institutional property owners and managers, leading designers and engineers, academics and civil servants, as well as other professionals, all active in the UK property sector. We welcome members and participants from the public and private, large and small organisations who care about advancing sustainability in all areas of our industry.
Delivering Our Vision
Our vision is to accelerate the rapid uptake of sustainability across the UK real estate sector, and to remove barriers to enable everyone to implement sustainable practice in all aspects of their work.
We will do this by providing inspiration to the UK property industry through high quality presentations of thought leaders, member discussion, select speakers and by sharing examples of best practice locally and internationally. We participate as a respected voice in the UK industry on sustainability issues and a ‘safe harbour’ where ideas can be discussed among peers, explored and fostered. We aim to be the first port of call for members in the UK on sustainability issues.
We work with industry representatives and the public sector in the UK to establish the national agenda. We also work closely with ULI, Greenprint and the European Council internationally, to ensure that we are sharing best practice and thought leadership with our members in the UK.
