Welcome from our 2022 Board Chair

In 2021, we launched a new strategic plan that will lay the foundation for net zero buildings across Illinois.

We’ve made immense strides in educating building professionals, advancing critical climate policy, and bringing tools and technologies to existing buildings across the state. This year, I’m looking forward to accelerating growth in green building and engaging our community in celebration of Illinois Green Alliance’s 20th Anniversary.

The building industry has rapidly advanced since 2002, but we don’t have 20 years to implement the high-performance technology we need to decarbonize the built environment and prevent the worst effects of climate change. No one is better poised to take the necessary action to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon in buildings than building professionals.

I’m encouraged by the passion and dedication of our community members who have a relentless focus on bringing high performing, healthy buildings to everyone in Illinois. 2022 is the beginning of the next 20 years of the green building future we need. I am excited to share opportunities to engage in our 20th Anniversary Campaign and our strategic plan to advance net zero buildings in Illinois. I encourage you to get involved with Illinois Green by sharing your expertise and making connections that move our industry forward.
