Environmental Building News
Environmental Building News has established the benchmark for relevance, insight, and usefulness in the green building field. It is the single most important and reliable publication in a fast-moving field. It is essential reading for architects, builders, consultants, and everyone interested in high performance buildings.
David Orr - Professor, Oberlin College
For excellent, current research on green building techniques and impacts, nobody matches EBN.
The single best source you can go to for staying up to date and well informed on all the (green building) issues.
The Journal of Light Construction
A must-read for architects and builders dedicated to creating healthy and environmentally friendly buildings.
Rocky Mountain Institute
I love EBN. I read it cover to cover when it comes and make notes in the margins. I constantly use sources cited in EBN and occasionally call companies mentioned for interviews [for magazine articles]. Your writing is concise and easy for a non-techie/non-builder to read and understand.
Eileen Beal - Writer, ASID
As an architect promoting sustainability, I rely heavily on EBN to bring me in-depth articles and data. Every issue is important to me; I read every one cover-to-cover. Back issues are kept in a binder on my desk. Although the office has dozens of subscriptions to various publications, this is the only one I buy for myself. Thank You!
Jeffrey B. Sties - Architect, William McDonough and Partners
The best place to start, from my perspective, is with Environmental Building News. No only does this monthly newsletter have the best coverage of what is going on in the field, they have a very useful bibliography that will have a number of titles related to residential design construction.
Russell Perry, AIA, SmithGroup
For those who are looking for a publication with reliable green building information, this is the one to get!
Dru Meadows - Architect, BSW
EBN is always my first and primary source. On those occasions that I foolishly did not begin my research with an article from you, I spent weeks compiling a list of sources I would later find on the back of your feature article. Moreover, the content of their information was already consolidated, compared and offered with conclusion. Though the firm was already subscribing to EBN when I arrived, my first official recommendation was that we invest in the CD-ROM of back issues. No Green library is complete without it.
Charlotte Matthews - Payette Associates, Inc.
I've been using EBN as a resource since the first issue. It is such a valuable resource and has continued to provide information not biased by advertising.
Debbi Allen - Environmental Design Consultant
EBN is an invaluable resource for its concise and in-depth information without commercial sponsorship raising questions of objectivity. EBN is almost always the first place I hear about new Green Building developments and I consider it my best and primary resource for sustainable design and construction information.
Andre D. DeBar, AIA - Senior Associate, Thompson Vaivoda and Associates Architects, Inc.
Environmental Building News is the best souce of unbiased information on green building that I know of. I recommend it, without reservation, to anybody interested in high performance and environmentally appropriate design!
Bryna Dunn, AICP - Researcher, Moseley, Harris & McClintock
I can expect to find the latest news, and get the best product and category reviews through your newsletter.
Dianne Thiel - Green Building Coordinator, Environmental Protection Agency Federal Government Green Building Program
I always read EBN cover to cover. It inspires and confirms my direction. It educates without overwhelming and it is so refreshing not to see advertising. I appreciate the even-handed approach to the resource depletors and toxics peddlers in our industry. Exposing the greenwashers and spotlighting the true do-gooders is a very valuable service and I thank you for providing it.
Chris Herman - Architect, Designer, Winter Sun Design
I've enjoyed the publication and appreciate the good, solid, tangible info I can pass on & share with my clients to help them make a more informed choice. Thanks!

The events calendar and the book reviews alone make a subscription worthwhile. Environmental Building News is absolutely the best way for building professionals to stay current with green-building news and resources.
Steve Toub - Environmental Publishing, Everybody's Green Guide, Sierra Club
EBN has lead me to cancel other professional publications that were not useful to me (i.e. glossy architectural magazines that never quite touch on important issues for the future, let alone tackle these issues in depth.)
Jane Willeboordse - Vice-Chairperson, Potomac Region Solar Energy Association
EBN has established itself as the leading green building periodical. I like that EBN gets down to the heart of the matter. EBN seems to have a goal to "make green building happen".
Dan Richardson - Founder/President , Sustainable Design Concepts
The full explanation of manufacturing techniques, processes, varieties of [building] materials, and the analysis of the implications of these processes is unique and invaluable.
Michael Alan Thomas - Architect
Sustainable building has come a long way in the last decade, and Environmental Building News has been instrumental in fostering the movement. EBN is perhaps the best source for current perspectives on sustainable building systems and construction materials.
Joe Schwartz - Writer, Home Power
Environmental Building News is consistently thought-provoking, enlightening, thorough, and unbiased.
The Last Straw, review
Environmental Building News is the most comprehensive and rigorously green monthly journal for sustainable building.
Meg Calkins - ASLA, Dept. Landscape Architecture U.I. at Urbana-Champlain, Landscape Architecture Mag.
I use my copy of the GreenSpec Directory regularly as a source of unbiased green product information. I also have the confidence that the products are carefully researched before they appear in the Directory. What makes the Directory even more useful is the fact that it is organized using CSI's MasterFormat section numbering system. I recommend it to both novices and experts alike.
Ross Spiegel Sr. Specification Writer, Fletcher-Thompson, Inc.
GreenSpec is an excellent resource for green building product research and a helpful tool for finding environmentally responsible materials.
Lynn M. Froeschle - Environmental Architect AIA, CSI, Lynn Froeschle, AIA architects
It's all here--the specifications that make a product 'green,' detailed descriptions of each product, waste-management tips. Contact information for retailers and distributors, and more. This is an invaluable resource for builders who want to take advatage of the growing consumer demand for green building.
Northwest Builder Magazine
GreenSpec is truly essential when seeking green building products.
Mary Rickel Pelletier - Architect
I have used your website almost exclusively in developing product specifications for what I hope to be the first LEED Gold certified public school in New Jersey.
Jason Kliwinski - RA LEED Accredited Professional, The Prisco Group
I have been trolling through your site looking for a variety of links and leads, and find it to be one of the most useful and user friendly sites I have seen. Good work!
Brian Palmquist - President, Pro Pacific Architecture Ltd.
You're helping people like myself who have just started a job in Green Building. I find it very much interesting. Your site just provides me with the answers to most of my questions. Congratulations and Good Luck for the future!
