The mission of the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter of the USGBC is to lead the region toward sustainability by encouraging and advancing environmental friendly knowledge and values as they pertain to the built environment and its relationship and impact on nature and human kind.
Founded in 2004, the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council (www.usgbc-fgc.org) is a 501c3 non-profit organization comprising building and associated industry professionals from Tampa Bay, Bradenton/Sarasota and Ft.

The Chapter, which has three branches with over 500 members, is committed to accelerating growth in sustainable building and land development practices through innovation, advocacy and partnerships.
The Chapter hosts LEED Green Building Rating System™ workshops and offers other educational sessions and networking events for the region’s green-building professionals.
The FGCC and our three branches offer members a variety of volunteer opportunities, including serving on committees such as advocacy, communications, education, programs and membership.
