The Irish Green Building Council is at the heart of inputting into national policy affecting the built environment. The regulatory system remains the key way of creating change and improving standards. Therefore IGBC makes submissions on every major policy consultation. We have been involved in proactively engaging on key projects such as the development of the Better Energy Financing scheme and the Renovation roadmap required under Article 4 of the Energy Efficiency Directive.

We believe that the built environment impacts on many different sectors including transport, health and well being, land use, energy policy and that it plays a key role in solving many of the problems associated with each of these.
