Our Initiatives

To advance our strategic plan, we provide green building education, promote new green building policy with the help of building professionals, and support existing buildings through several key community programs. Learn more about our work below.


Educating sustainability professionals

Through volunteer and staff-driven education, we host over 30 programs each year designed to deliver the latest trends in green building, share technical expertise, and convene experts to put us on the path to net zero.
