The USGBC is widely known for its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building certification program and Greenbuild, an annual international conference and expo that that promotes the greenbuilding industry and its robust educational offerings.
The USGBC had more than 18, 500 member organizations coming from various sectors of the building industry. The national member organizations come from big companies and small businesses to non-profit and government sectors. The USGBC has 79 chapters which are led by its passionate volunteers and expert staff who engages in education, advocacy and outreach to promote green building and sustainable policies and help expand the USGBC network in local communities.
