Our Board

We believe in strong governance and accountability – to our mission, to the green building movement, and to our member Green Building Councils.

And this is the role of our Board of Directors, a group of highly experienced building industry professionals who hold senior positions on the staff or Boards of our Established member Green Building Councils (or who are still closely affiliated with them).

The Board’s role is to advise and oversee WorldGBC’s organisational strategy and governance, and to ensure we are operating effectively as a not for profit organisation and delivering on our mission.

We follow best practice governance and elect our Chair and each Board member every two years.


Nominations for new Board members open!

WorldGBC is recruiting new Board members to provide leadership to the WorldGBC.

Board Directors must be nominated by their national Green Building Council, and ultimately represent the best interests of the WorldGBC. Each Established Green Building Council is encouraged to put forward between one and four candidates; however, only one candidate per Green Building Council will be eligible to join the Board.

WorldGBC values and seeks diversity: regional, gender, ethnicity, as well as skills and experience.

Who are we looking for?

Specifically, in 2018, WorldGBC is seeking Board members with particular expertise in:

  • Strategic planning and impact assessment and monitoring;
  • Significant CEO/Director/Chair level experience inside and outside of the GBC community;
  • Fundraising with a focus on large grants, corporate sponsorship, and high net worth individuals;
  • Accounting and finance experience.

Nominations are due by 31 March 2018, and terms commence 1 July 2018.
