Why?

We are people who passionately believe that promoting sustainable buildings and communities transforms the way people live, work, and play.  Promoting and building green buildings and neighborhoods will help the economy, the environment, protect the heritage of Rhode Island  and ensure that our grandchildren are able to enjoy a better quality of life for generations to come.

The mission of USGBC is to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life.

The vision of USGBC is that buildings and communities will regenerate and sustain the health and vitality of all life within a generation.
