About the Zambia Green Buildings Association
The Zambia Green Building Association (ZGBA) is an independent, not-for-profit, member-based organisation with the mission to drive the sustainable transformation of the built environment. Launched by Government and the private sector on February 26, 2015, it serves as a platform for the whole of the Zambian property and building construction industry to collectively create a community that champions the sustainable transformation of the built environment in Zambia.
The Zambia Green Building Association is active in issues related to green building governance, education and technical training, advocacy, awareness raising and green certification that provide means for buildings to be publically recognised as being green.
Activities of the ZGBA include green building site tours to appreciate the sustainable building technologies and principals. Other activities include professional networking, awareness raising through training workshops, commemorations, exhibitions and attending industry conferences.
