USGBC Alabama is at the forefront of environmentally-sensible development and sustainability in the state. We work at the national and regional levels to advocate for high performance healthy buildings, and deliver high-quality sustainable building education and networking opportunities.
Our volunteers range from community members participating in service projects to LEED professional credential holders.. Our members encourage and facilitate further growth of the green building market in Alabama to support economic development through green jobs and regional materials, cost-effective, energy-saving practices, sustainable management of our state’s abundant natural resources, and healthier communities for all Alabama residents. Our members meet on a regular basis in four regional branches, from North Alabama to the Gulf Coast.
In addition to serving as Alabama's resource and advocates for green building information and training, one of our primary volunteer initiatives is to improve the health and efficiency of learning environments. Our Green Apple Day of Service projects and other sustainability education programs support the Alabama State Department of Education's Green Ribbon Schools committee.
