About

USGBC+ is the membership magazine of the U.S. Green Building Council. That plus sign in the title may appear diminutive, but it packs a huge punch. It signifies the work we do every day at USGBC to bring you the resources and support you need to take your green building efforts to unimagined heights.

To receive 1 hour of GBCI CE, first read the USGBC+ Spring 2018 issue or the individual articles online (linked below and in the Additional Resources on the right). Then click "Take the quiz" on the right side of this page. Upon passing the quiz, your hour will be reported to GBCI and you will be able to download a certificate of completion.
