The U.S. Green Building Council is a committee-based, member-driven, consensus-focused non-profit founded in 1993 that currently represents over 17,000 companies and organizations. The USGBC – West Michigan Chapter was established in 2004.
Our mission is to transform the way buildings and communities are designed,
built and operated, that improves the quality of life in West Michigan.
As the “front door” of USGBC in West Michigan, the primary purposes for
which we have organized are to:
– accelerate the initiation, development and implementation of market-based
green building efforts, policies, program technologies, design practices, and
– to facilitate networking and communication among all interested parties
on green building activities in the area served by the chapter
– to coordinate with green building efforts occurring nationwide and
cooperating with the USGBC national organization
