USGBC+ Magazine January/February 2017
USGBC+, the membership magazine of the U.S. Green Building Council, explores the life and work of the people who design and craft intelligent, high-performance buildings and spaces, bringing to light the creativity and passion behind every green building project.
In the January/February 2017 issue, Building, Lasting, Partnerships, we meet members of the newly-formed LEED User Group: Commercial Contractors and explore how accredited builders connect and achieve their projects' full potential. We learn about the Zero Waste certification and the high-profile brands using it to formalize their efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle. We hear from members in the private sector that have joined forces with global governments to create mutual opportunities to advance a sustainable economy. We also delve into great examples of how partnership is driving social and environmental change; from Lava Mae and Kohler helping to address a chronic challenge facing homeless populations, to Green For All advocating for disenfranchised communities to have a voice in the policies that shape their lives, and the various public and private stakeholders that have come together to make Yellowstone the nation's greenest park. This issue also takes a peek into a new software program that assesses triple bottom line impacts of projects, and delves into a new AIA initiative that supports firms in the 2030 Challenge. With an opening letter from Mahesh Ramanujam, President and CEO of USGBC and GBCI, and a closing Q&A with Moira Moser, founder and chairman of M Moser Architects, this issue is not to be missed.Please note: USGBC+ is included with USGBC membership.
