ABOUT THE U.S. GREEN BUILDING COUNCIL
The mission of USGBC North Carolina is to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life.
• Since the resources of our planet are finite, as builders, facility managers, architects, designers, engineers, civic leaders, and community advocates, it is our role to safeguard those resources.
• We have a responsibility - indeed an obligation to equally weigh the costs and benefits of our work to the environment, the economy and the community.
• We want the development of our community to represent the values of the represented institutions while responsibly managing the resources shared by all.
