CIC is supporting UK-GBC's Pinpoint

Posted: 7th June 2013

CIC is supporting UK-GBC’s Pinpoint – an independent, free to access online platform that has been created for the industry, by the industry. It points you towards the best resources that are out there, which will help make your project, organisation or product as sustainable as possible. Please click here to watch a two minute animation explaining how Pinpoint works.

Pinpoint has been designed with significant input from the sector. It provides a sustainability search function and allows users to apply further filters based on the part of the building lifecycle they are working on, the type of resources they are looking for and more. Pinpoint also encourages users to review resources themselves, helping others to see what tools, metrics and case studies would be most relevant for them. UK-GBC will act as ‘curators’ and moderators of the content provided by built environment practitioners, as well as acting as the main point of contact for further advice.

Members of CIC are welcome to add their own sustainability resources in the form of your own case studies, training and education courses, events, guidance, reports, standards etc.
UK-GBC would also like to know what resources you recommend within your sector and what your views are on the industry tools that you use as a sustainability practitioner. The comments section on each resource’s page is available to registered users of the site.

To start using Pinpoint, please go to the home page and sign up. You can also connect with Pinpoint on social media sites Twitter @UKGBCPinpoint and a LinkedIn group for updates on the latest resources being added.

For further information, or if you would like UK-GBC to present Pinpoint to your own organisation, please contact Natalia Ford.
