Over ten years ago, a group of dreamers came together to create a Colorado community aligned with environmental and social stewardship. Our volunteers quickly coalesced to educate, inspire, and communicate about sustainable buildings and communities, and recruit likeminded folk, spreading the word across the land. Please join us as we transform the places we live, learn, work, and play!
Colorado is a recognized leader – one of the top three states in the U.S. when it comes to renewable energy attractiveness and the amount of LEED certified square footage per capita.
USGBC Colorado contributed to the state’s leadership through partnerships with green building professionals, local non-profits and communities. Our avenues of collaboration include a Living Building Challenge Collaborative, Certifiably Green Denver, Commercial Real Estate and Green Schools initiatives, and LEED Professionals Give Back community service events.
USGBC Colorado successfully advocates for local ordinances and state statutes to support healthy, sustainable communities; including graywater legislation and a Green multiple listing service addendum to better inform home buyers, sellers, and real estate professionals.
We invite you to attend an educational or networking program. You may enjoy involvement at the local level through one of our Branches (Metro Denver, Northern Colorado, Southern Colorado, and the Roaring Fork Valley). Or, just come to our programs to learn from and be inspired by our top-notch speakers and passionate members.
