Building Blocks of Green Building: Beyond the Basics, What You Need to Know About Solar PV for Homes.

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:


2021 - North Florida Green Chamber Water Quality and Resource Award
2013 - American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) and the Alliance for Water Efficiency (AWE) Exemplary Water-Energy Program


Disaster Recovery Funds Resources

The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity has approved FGBC certifications as a requirement for rebuilding homes with disaster recovery funds. FGBC has created a resource page to help builders and certifying agents through this process. This page contains training videos, floor plans and additional resources.
