Any company with corporate sustainability goals, or an eye on green buildings will benefit from a Green Building Advocate membership. With direct access to many benefits that help demonstrate their support and connect with industry leaders, this is the best way to get involved in this influential industry.
Green Building Advocates are: companies and organizations that actively support the green building industry and want to demonstrate their commitment through CaGBC membership. Usually, Advocates do not require access to LEED® or GBCI CA benefits and are not building owners.
Advocates may include: Manufacturers, retailers, non-owner tenants, government policy departments, utilities, academic or research Institutions, Industry Associations and other NGOs.
