Behind the ease of e-commerce, sustainable manufacturing benefits everyone

Published on Written by Posted in Industry

For manufacturers, efficiency equals a successful business, and LEED buildings are energy- and water-efficient.

These days, it’s easy to shop online, but just because you’re not going to the brick and mortar store doesn’t mean your goods aren’t coming from a LEED-certified green building. When we look back on this time, I suspect one of the biggest wonders will be how so many things, including the shopping cart, moved to "the cloud," but tangible products still wound up at our doors.

Parksmart: The path to sustainable mobility for all

Published on Written by Posted in Industry

Green parking structure management, design and technology is another way to be more sustainable.

At USGBC, one important goal of our vision is promoting sustainable mobility around the world. We believe that parking and sustainability are not mutually exclusive concepts. We say that every story about a green building is a story about people, and every story about parking is a story about the connection between people and the planet.
