Sharing stories about the green building movement


About USGBC+

USGBC+ tells the stories of the people behind a powerful and ever-growing global green building movement. Published by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), we strive to bring you the latest in green building innovation, celebrate leadership and highlight inspiring voices that are shaping the next generation of green building.

We are driven by a simple belief that healthy people in healthy places equals a healthy economy. Through quarterly issues and supplemental content, we aim to showcase the people and projects that embody that belief. Our stories reflect the four pillars at the heart of USGBC’s work—sustainability, health and wellness, resilience, and equity—and are critical to raising the living standard for all.

Green building has the power to impact businesses, the economy, our communities and the way we live. Our goal is to explore those stories and demonstrate how green building work is driving better decisions in design, construction and operations across our buildings, cities and communities.
