Green Building Council


The Norwegian Green Building Council was established in 2010 to drive sustainability in the Norwegian built environment, primarily through the introduction of environmental rating tools. The most important tool in the Norwegian market is BREEAM-NOR – a national adaption of BREEAM International.

NGBC is committed to provide training, tools, guidance and know-how to make sure our members are able to increase their environmental standards and drive the rest of the building industry in a more sustainable direction.
