USGBC National Membership

As leaders in the advanced education of men and women across the country, colleges and universities are preparing students to address the unique challenges of the 21st century. With buildings contributing 40% of CO2 emissions, consuming 72% of all electricity emitted, 13.6% of all potable water and 40% of all raw materials, green building education and practice could not be more relevant or applicable.

As higher education institution members of the U.S. Green Building Council, colleges and universities have access to events, training and resources to support faculty, students and staff as they transform the built environment.

All USGBC member organizations enjoy the following exclusive benefits of being part of our community:
