U.S. Green Building Council

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and its community are changing the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated. They believe in better buildings; places that complement their environment and enhance their communities. Places that give people better, brighter, healthier spaces to live, work and play. Green building is a win-win, offering both environmental and economic opportunity. Greater building efficiency can meet 85 percent of future demand for energy in the United States and a commitment to green building has the potential to generate 2.5 million jobs.
