Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC)
The Florida Green Building Coalition is a nonprofit Florida corporation dedicated to improving the built environment. The certification is designed to lead and promote sustainability with environmental, economic, and social benefits through regional education 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. FGBC is unique in a way that the certification takes into consideration the unique climate that Florida has compared to rest of the nation.
