Why Join AECB?

Be part of the UK's largest sustainable building community – A great platform to give our existing members a solid network that they can feel part of through collaboration, research and best practice. We do this by supporting our local groups and partner organisations, introducing regular themed webinars, producing new areas and sections of the website and looking at regional events run through our local groups. We focus on society’s need to build better buildings and to dramatically improve the performance of existing buildings, in the context of energy security, climate change and peoples’ health and well-being.

Your membership subscriptions help us to continue our essential work and we offer an attractive range of benefits in return.
