U.S. Green Building Council

The U.S. Green Building Council is an organization that is changing the way buildings and communities are designed, built, and operated. The organization believes in better buildings: places that complement the environment and enhance communities and places that give people better, brighter, healthier spaces to live, work, and play. 

The organization is made up of a diverse group of builders and environmentalists, corporations, and non-profits, teachers and students, lawmakers, and citizens. It has 77 chapters and 13,000 member organizations. 

USGBC spearheads Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) - a certification system for buildings, homes and communities that guides the design, construction, operations, and maintenance. It is the most widely recognized and widely-used green-building program across the globe. LEED is certifying 1.6 million square feet of building space each day in more than 130 countries.
