Our plan for transformation

The vision and mission of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) are to improve the quality of life by transforming the design, composition, and operation of the places where we live, learn, work, and play within the short space of a generation.

In December 2012, the USGBC Board of Directors approved the 2013-2015 Strategic Plan to both guide and power our organization. This plan is complemented by an annual financial plan and operating plan as well seven Guiding Principles.

We invite you to read our plan and join us by working together as one community to realize these important goals.

Let us write a new story together.
