With a deep legacy of stewardship and care for creation, communities of faith are increasingly committing to building green. U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) launched a campaign for engagement with faith-based communities in 2012 at their annual conference, Greenbuild, 2012 in San Francisco.

Over the following year, USGBC’s Faith-based Action Team was formed and explored opportunities with and needs for the greening of faith-communities. At Greenbuild 2013 in Philadelphia, PA, USGBC’s Community Advancement team gathered green building leaders, community partners and faith leaders to explore opportunities to help faith-based organizations make steps towards improving the health, efficiency and resource use of their houses of worship and congregations.
