Emerging Member of the WorldGBC

HuGBC

Introduction

Our mission

The Hungary Green Building Council (HuGBC) was founded in 2009. We are a nonprofit, nationwide, professional and social co-operation launched in an association form by architects, engineers, real estate developers, building materials manufacturers, property managers, mechanical engineers, economists, companies and organizations active in various fields of the building industry who are committed to the environment. The HuGBC has set itself the objective of contributing to the spreading of environmentally responsible and at the same time profitable construction practices through the promotion of the necessary market, educational and legislative conditions in Hungary.

Our core activities

  • We are involved in the professional development of architectural regulations that promote environmentally conscious and sustainable construction, and in the proper enforcement of environmental awareness.

  • In the field of green building, we are engaged in a professional knowledge-based communication at social level.

  • We share the knowledge, experience and innovative practices of our members with the interested professionals in the framework of trainings, conferences and workshops for professionals.

  • We contribute to the familiarization and dissemination of green rating systems (LEED, BREEAM, DGNB), and to the training of professionals.

  • We are in close contact with higher education institutions to introduce new technologies.

  • We are a recognized emerging member organization of the international World Green Building Council, so we rely on international experiences as well. We bring cutting-edge strategic principles, methodology and practices to Hungary.

What are proud of

  • We were a professional partner for the Budapest bid for the 2024 Olympics in the field of sustainability and post-utilization.

  • For many years, we have been a professional partner and lecturer at Öko-logikus (Eco-Logical) Conference Series, reaching 500-600 architects annually.

  • Every year we organize our own conference based on the most current themes, with the participation of about 100 professionals and with lectures presented by Hungarian and foreign experts.

  • Our self-organized "Environmental Awareness from A to Z" training provide architects with the knowledge that can help them shift their activities towards environmentally conscious and green construction.

  • As lecturers, our members constantly receive invitations for professional programs and events of other organizations.

  • By now, we have elaborated more than 10 opinions and proposals in the area of architectural regulation.

  • We have the only complex database of Hungarian buildings that achieved green ratings of LEED, BREEAM or DGNB.

  • Since 2013, we have been continuously organizing building tours within the Green Walk event series, having approx. 20 locations and 500 participants a year.

  • We write a „green” column in Metszet architectural magazine and in Ecolife monthly lifestyle magazine.

  • Our Green Newsletter is sent to about 1400 e-mail addresses on a monthly basis.
