Formation of the Malaysia Green Building Confederation started in May 2007, when a group consultants, academia and representatives from the building industry met to initiate a non-profit making organisation to promote sustainable buildings in Malaysia. This group with increasing participants met several times during 2007 and 2008, and official registration of the Malaysia Green Building Confederation was initiated.
Later in 2008, the group was supported by the two professional organisations Pertubuhan Akitek Malaysia (PAM) and the Association of Consulting Engineers Malaysia (ACEM), and by April 2009, the Malaysia Green Building Confederation was officially registered.
The MGBC is supported by the professional, industrial and government sectors. It is well poised to lead our building industry in embracing responsible measures that would help realized energy savings, water conservation, a healthier indoor environment, better public connectivity, recycling of valuable resources and provision of greenery in developments.
