The New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC) is a not-for-profit, industry organisation. Their vision is that New Zealanders live, work and play in healthy, efficient and productive buildings in a sustainable built environment. 

They achieve this through:

- Promoting the benefits of sustainable buildings by creating a common language and demonstrating the value 

- Assisting the property and construction sector to acquire the skills and knowledge to be able to deliver a sustainable built environment 

- Motivating and rewarding the sustainable development and operation of buildings across New Zealand. 

The history of the NZIOB started in 1964 under the banner of the Australian Institute of Building (AIB). In 1983 the umbilical cord was cut, and the NZIOB was incorporated. Throughout its now, 34-year history, the NZIOB and its membership have been very focused on performing two core roles:

- Development of an active and collegial construction community that provides CPD and social events to a membership that is drawn across the entire sector 

- Representing the entire construction industry as an energetic, articulate and reliable stakeholder.
