The mission of the US Green Building Council Massachusetts Chapter is to promote the design, construction, and operation of sustainable buildings and communities in Massachusetts through education, collaboration, and advocacy, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life.

The USGBC Massachusetts Chapter is a membership-based community advocating for green buildings at the state and local level. The USGBC MA Chapter provides green building education, networking, advocacy and leadership opportunities for the sustainable building community and beyond. Our events and programming are supported by the volunteer efforts of our community members.

Over 500 people participate as members & active volunteers, and over 6000 people subscribe to our various communication lists. Through our many committees, we address all aspects of the greening of the real estate sector: planning, design & engineering, construction, management & operation, and beyond. We help all practitioners by promoting market transformation. 

You can join us by becoming a member and be a part of this massive effort to improve the built environment.

Chapter History

The road was first paved in 2008 when the USGBC MA Membership Forum was formed with the support of The Green Roundtable/NEXUS. On September 20, 2009, the organization incorporated as a Chapter of the USGBC, due to the efforts of many dedicated members and the Board of Directors, as well as support from USGBC and NEXUS.

You can listen to a brief interview with Grey Lee for an overview of the Chapter, filmed in February 2015 by the NEREJ Media Group.


We encourage participation from the green building industry and beyond in helping us achieve our mission.
