Green Buildings and Human Health
USGBC has started exploring how to clearly link the market transformation that the green building movement has inspired to its opportunity to create an equally transformational impact on human health. In “Health is a Human Right. Green Building Can Help,” a report from USGBC’s Green Building & Human Health Summit in early 2013, we examine ways to promote and protect human health in relation to the built environment.
As a next step in our work, we've put out to our community a set of draft principles for your input. Our intent is that they serve as a trail map towards a number of initiatives and efforts to advance this critical aspect of green building.
Please leave your comments below and we'll use your input to help us get to the next round.
Because if there is one thing we know to be true: If health is a human right, and green building can help, we’ve got a lot of work to do.
