USGBC Commits to Homeowner Education

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), with support from national land developer Newland Communities, has announced a commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), an organization dedicated to addressing global issues through the commitments of individuals and organizations. USGBC has committed to creating a one-year consumer-education campaign on its website, which is visited by more than 300,000 people each month. The campaign, valued by CGI at $250,000, will educate homeowners and builders about green building practices that can help them save energy and thus lower their contribution to global warming. It will also coincide with the launch of USGBC’s LEED® for Homes Rating System as well as the pilot period for LEED for Neighborhood Development, which focuses on urban development projects.
