The mission of the AECB is to facilitate environmentally responsible practices in the construction industry. Specifically the AECB aims to:
- Promote the use of products and materials which are safe, healthy and sustainable;
- Encourage member’s projects that respect, protect and enhance the environment;
- Make available comprehensive information and guidance about products, methods and projects;
- Support the interests and endeavours of members in achieving these aims.
The AECB has recently embarked on its CarbonLite programme, which includes the development of gold and silver energy standards.
