The USGBC Massachusetts Chapter is the foremost advocate for green buildings here in the Commonwealth, with a focus on raising awareness and action on green building strategies, net metering, PACE and other environmental issues. We represent the USGBC and the important building evaluation systems like LEED, WELL, and GRESB, and the other programs like PEER, SITES and more. We are part of the International Living Futures Institute, supproting the Living Building Challenge (LBC), Boston Collaborative and the many programs they promote including the LBC, Living Product Challenge, the Just label and the Declare label, among others.

 

 

Membership: Are you ready to be an active member of our community?

What are the ways you can demonstrate your participation in our mission? We have created a game that everyone in our community can play.

The game is like LEED: major categories where you can earn specific points based on doing a variety of things that all add up to being a member who makes a difference. We would like to spur a little competitive energy in order to raise up and amplify our efforts to transform the built environment toward net positive impact.

Categories:

  • Participation in programs - educational & networking
  • Involvement in organizing & leadership
  • Financial support
  • Advocacy
  • Service
  • Recruitment
  • Social Media
