Statement from Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO & Founding Chair

“By embracing free enterprise and using market-based approaches we have proven that a healthy environment and a strong economy can go hand and hand. The U.S. Green Building Council is moving the green building industry forward in a way that has never been seen before. Yes, green growth is fueling an entire industry and we are proud of that progress.

Through LEED and USGBC’s other programs, our members are driving the construction industry’s green transformation. LEED buildings save energy, water and precious resources, reduce waste and carbon emissions, create jobs, save money, drive innovation and provide healthier, more comfortable spaces to live, work and learn.

The building products, materials, systems and services that are developed in the marketplace and utilized in LEED buildings are successful because they are created with environmental stewardship goals in mind. We are encouraged when companies develop products and services that support better buildings and communities. If they succeed, we all succeed because the construction is greener and more sustainable.

“The adage ‘doing well by doing good’ is the foundation on which USGBC was built.

Members join USGBC to be part of the process, share what they know and collaborate with others to help us raise the bar and broaden our positive impact. We are proud that LEED reflects the collective expertise and design intelligence of the tens of thousands of environmental advocates and building industry professionals who have helped to create it.”
