Green Magazine provides an editorial voice for the growing number of associations and businesses that promote and encourage green building and sustainable development.
The U.S. Green Building Council – Colorado Chapter is a diverse collection of individuals that was recognized in April 2003 as the 15th official local chapter of the national organization. Members have the chance to actively connect with each other to share and celebrate our successes and support each other through the challenges as part of the leading coalition representing the industry on environmental building matters.
We strive to energetically communicate our knowledge, practices and values with others and boldly question processes, methods, and products towards sustaining solutions. This includes applying environmental principles and practices on all projects, and using the LEED Green Building Rating System (TM) as a guiding tool that supports the adoption of sustainable building.
Vision: Promote responsibility for Colorado’s environmental legacy.
CORE, Connected Organizations for a Responsible Economy
Fusing Sustainability with Business
1625 Broadway, Suite 950
Denver, CO, 80202
Why should “social responsibility” and “sustainability” be important concepts to business people in Colorado? Because we’re in a global economy and our competition and the rest of the world has already embraced them!
CORE is a Colorado’s leading sustainable business trade association that enhances the economic vitality and competitive positioning of its members by assisting them in integrating socially and environmentally responsible business practices into profitable commercial enterprises. We achieve our mission by developing cutting-edge training and education programs, providing valuable tools and resources, and by assisting our members develop and share best practices.
CORE helps grow a thriving business community that creates a prosperous regional economy meeting the needs of citizens without compromising the lifestyle of future generations. The association’s members are renowned for their entrepreneurial talent in creating and operating productive businesses that integrate economic, social, and environmental concerns; and that successfully serve the interests of their customers, community and shareholders.
Welcome to the U.S. Green Building Chapter Texas Gulf Coast where we believe a healthy, cleaner, safer and greener built environment is available to everyone along the gulf.
Representing almost 1,300 individuals, more than 1,600 LEED APs and more than 200 companies, the Texas Gulf Coast is a vibrant and growing organization based in Houston with three branches in Galveston County, Montgomery County and Coastal Bend – with other branch territories being developed. The branches execute our chapter’s educational programs to meet community needs and grow the LEED/green building mission.
Through a robust Industry Education Program the chapter creates a foundation for a magnificent green building and LEED education program designed to funnel new professionals into the industry and the USGBC community. Tours, workshops, educational sessions and other programs create opportunities for continuing education, green building lessons and professional growth.
The Community Education Program is an innovative idea in the green building communities. By leveraging our industry membership base and trade association relationships we are uniquely qualified to answer questions and community needs related to the built environment experience. We believe we can change the expectations that parents, schoolchildren, workers, tenants, homeowners and others have of their built environment. By doing that, we can change the expectations they have of themselves and their communities.
We have always been a chapter that understands how to bring new and relevant topics to the community we serve and the public at-large. Through our revitalized Community Learning Program, we present symposias, training sessions and community awareness activities several times a year through our committees, branches and collaborating organizations.
Our chapter is growing. Our programs are getting stronger and our leadership is trained to lead a generational movement that is taking marketplace transformation into a cultural revolution.
We welcome you to join us at www.usgbctexasgulfcoast.org because “going green” isn’t just about hugging trees anymore.
The distinguishing characteristic of the USGBC Arizona Chapter is a focus on green building techniques, technologies and philosophies appropriate to the arid bio-region that encompasses the southwestern United States and northern Mexico.
Whether in the pine forests of Show-Low, the lush desert of Scottsdale and Tucson, or the low desert of Yuma, the common characteristics of low humidity and vast sunshine tie this bio-region together, influencing the appropriateness of various green building tools. Our Chapter goals involve educating the marketplace for overall awareness of green building, and understanding and communicating how that applies specifically to our climate.
In one of the fastest growing regions of the country, we are making a large impact in the commercial building industry quickly. The level of interest in LEED and green building is similar to a smoldering wildfire just as the wind starts to kick up. Our plan is to build the infrastructure and local industry knowledge base not to fight it, but to guide it to overwhelming success.
