USGBC Central Plains strives to lead the sustainable regional transformation of the built environment in Kansas and Western Missouri. Our mission is to lead the regional transformation of the built environment by promoting ecologically responsible, cost effective, productive and healthy places to live, learn and work.
We are architects, planners, interior designers, engineers, landscape architects, developers, and many other sustainability professionals committed to a more sustainable built environment. We value an integrated approach to decision making to take advantage of the many disciplines our members bring to the table.
The USGBC Central Plains Chapter is the only professional organization allowed to offer official LEED™ workshops to Kansas and western Missouri taught by USGBC nationally trained faculty. We also create customized sustainability and green building training for our markets, taught by experts in the field. Our members are engaged in nearly every major green initiative in the region, bringing not only their professional career experience, but USGBC national resources and best management practices in sustainability in the built environment to all aspects of the design / build / manage cycle.
At USGBC Central Plains, we represent the public, private, nonprofit, education and health care sectors, as well as green product manufacturers and service providers. We are students. We are entrepreneurs. We are teachers. We are builders. We are neighbors. Together, we envision a greener region that truly celebrates the culture, history and environment of our spaces, inside and out, and people that design, build and use them.
