UK-GBC’s Online Sustainability Search Platform Launches

CIC is supporting UK-GBC’s new online sustainability search platform Pinpoint.

Built environment professionals searching for information on sustainability can now do so using Pinpoint – the UK Green Building Council’s free, easy to navigate and independent online platform which goes live today.

The platform – currently the world’s only dedicated online search engine for sustainability resources in the built environment – allows users to search for information on how to make their projects, products or organisations more sustainable.

Pinpoint users are also encouraged to add their own resources as well as comment on and recommend existing information to help others find the best possible resources.

More than 200 resources including measurement and reporting tools, case studies, reports, training courses and guidance are already available and it is expected that the platform will feature 500 resources by the end of 2013.

Pinpoint has received widespread support from trade associations, professional bodies and UK-GBC members and is being sponsored by Ecobuild, EPR Architects, Marks & Spencer, Mitsubishi Electric and Wates Group.
