USGBC National Capital Region is working to make healthy, sustainable buildings a reality for the people of the greater Washington, DC, metropolitan area within a generation. We serve the District of Columbia, Montgomery and Prince George’s counties in Maryland and northern Virginia.

Our diverse membership is comprised of builders, architects, environmentalists and nonprofits, each providing a wealth of knowledge and industry access at every level. Today, in the D.C. area, you’ll find some of the strongest green building codes in the country; the most LEED-certified space per person in the U.S.; and one of the highest concentrations of LEED professionals in the nation.

As part of a large network helping advance sustainable places to live and work nationwide, we help fulfill USGBC’s mission in the National Capital Region by providing education, volunteer, and networking opportunities.
