Read the latest issue of USGBC+ and then take the quiz for CE credit.

The July/August 2017 issue of USGBC+ showcases the platforms and practices by which leaders in the green building movement create innovative solutions and prioritize energy efficiency and resiliency.

Take a look at four of our top stories from the issue:

  • Safeguarding Brazil: Protecting the Amazon’s tropical rainforests has become a multidimensional affair with global implications.
  • Idea Exchange: LEED User Groups share challenges, opportunities and best practices in sustainability.
  • Energy-efficient Data: Data centers power our digital lives. Now, LEED is helping the world’s top data companies find new paths to energy efficiency.
  • Energy Efficiency, Squared: For almost 25 years, Energy Star and USGBC have joined forces to deliver more energy-efficient products, homes and businesses.

In addition, two special online-only articles are available for this issue. Be sure to check them out, because they're not in your hard copy of USGBC+.

  • Material Matters: USGBC Platinum members are rising to the challenge of designing and making products that last.
  • Durable Design: Four USGBC Platinum members are leading the way on resilient design.
