The USGBC Wisconsin community is committed to transforming the way buildings are designed, constructed and operated. Local leadership achieves this through support for the continued growth of LEED certification and related green building rating systems and tools. Achievement of LEED certification demonstrates a commitment to greater energy, water and waste savings and improves the health and well-being of building occupants and the surrounding environment.
The USGBC Wisconsin community is proud to celebrate the leadership of Wisconsin building owners, designers and construction professionals who achieve LEED certification with the USGBC Wisconsin Leadership Awards. Connect with your peers across Wisconsin at this year’s Transformation Awards reception and luncheon, held at the Milwaukee County War Memorial from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. on June 21.
