Select a corporate membership option that fits your organization.

Green Building Advocate

Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability. 

Advocates are companies and organizations that recognize the value of green building and want to support sustainability, but do not directly use CAGBC’s certification services. Advocates members are manufacturers, retailers, building tenants, government departments, utilities, academic or research institutions, industry associations, and other NGOs.  

Advocate members benefit from: 

  • Joining a community growing demand for green building services, products, and spaces.   
  • Curated learning experiences that enhance professional development and expertise.   
  • Access to research that informs market insights and leadership.   
  • Cross-sector accelerator groups and advocacy that shape the industry.

Employees of corporate member companies are included under the company membership. Simply apply as a corporate member employee and select the company name to access membership benefits. 

Green Building Specialist

Design, build and manage green buildings.  

Specialists are companies and organizations that design, construct, own and operate green buildings. They depend on CAGBC’s certification programs and services and technical expertise to unlock the value of green buildings to meet sustainability and business goals. Specialists include building owners, tenants, engineers, architects, designers, developers, contractors, builders, real estate brokers or managers, and government departments.  

Specialist members benefit from:
