The Alliance for Sustainable Building Products (ASBP) is a non-profit, mission driven organisation, with an ever-growing membership alliance of forward-thinking companies and institutions from across the built environment sector.
We launched at the Palace of Westminster in 2011 with 9 founder members. Our membership now totals well over 100 progressive organisations, including world-renowned research institutions, trade bodies, architectural practices, contractors, and product manufacturers from start-ups and innovators, to market-leading multinational companies.
“To lead the transformation to a healthy low carbon built environment by championing the understanding and use of demonstrably sustainable building products.”
Team and board
Our team continues to grow, with 8 staff members now supporting our activities.
We have a vastly experienced and diverse group of board members who we work closely with. They advise on strategy, help to scope our activities, author technical briefing papers and judge the annual ASBP Awards.
ASBP partners with a number of like-minded organisations who share our ethos and vision for a sustainable built environment. We are also part of the SDF Alliance, under the umbrella of the Sustainable Development Foundation.
ASBP members regularly receive discounted tickets to partner organisations’ event, whilst members of partner organisations can register for ASBP events at a reduced rate, including our annual Healthy Buildings Conference.
Our partner organisations include: ACAN, AECB, Building Performance Network, BWF, CIBSE, Fit for the Future, Good Homes Alliance, Passivhaus Trust, STBA, The Green Register and Woodknowledge Wales.
What our members say
“I would like to express my gratitude to the ASBP for all the hard work you do in defining what sustainable construction could and should be. Given the love and effort that I have put into my retrofit project it meant a lot to me (and my family) to win an ASBP Award.”
Harry Paticas MBE
Founder, Retrofit Action For Tomorrow (RAFT)
“I thought the Healthy Buildings Conference was excellent – one of the best conference I’ve been to in years. Interesting, stimulating talks and really good networking. I definitely agree that it should become an annual fixture – it really is the next big topic.”

Credible sustainability standards are an essential tool for continuous improvement of the built environment. Our focus is upon product standards such as Environmental Product Declarations (EPD), eco-labels, and health labels and with how these standards are valued in ‘balanced-score card’ approaches such as BREEAM, LEED and WELL.
ASBP is the UK representative of the association natureplus. The natureplus eco-label sets stringent sustainability criteria for the accreditation of construction products, with a focus on material sourcing, health & wellbeing aspects and embodied carbon, amongst others.
