Sustainability and green building are projected to see growth for years to come, with its influence reaching across the U.S. economy, generating significant environmental and social benefits. Backed by community, research and tools, we use advocacy, partnerships, and campaigns to drive development of green buildings and communities.
Our advocacy goals:
- Ensure that taxpayer dollars being spent on federal, state and municipal buildings are investing in buildings that cost less to build and operate and are healthier for people.
- Ensure that lawmakers and elected officials have access to current and cutting-edge information on green building and resilient cities and communities so they can make the best decisions on behalf of their constituents.
- Ensure that policies incentivize and encourage the use of LEED and other resources that create economic, environmental and social value.
- Leverage our external engagements and contacts to promote organizational reputation and relevance for resilience, equity, climate, and quality of life.
