US Green Building Council (USGBC)

The US Green Building Council (USGBC) is a membership-based non-profit organisation that promotes sustainability in building design, construction, and operation.

The USGBC is a movement of community leaders, professionals, businesses and innovators working to accomplish a single vision: healthy, efficient and equitable.

The USGBC vision is that buildings and communities will regenerate and sustain the health and viability of all life within a generation. Their mission is to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life.

USGBC members demonstrate their commitment to sustainability while also making an impact within their sphere of influence, advancing the movement for a more sustainable built environment. The USGBC members also have access to the greater green building community and industry leadership opportunities through participation in USGBC and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) committees, local volunteer opportunities, conferences and webinars, and meetings with elected officials to advance the green building industry.
