USGBC at Greenbuild

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is helping change the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated. We believe in better buildings — places that complement our environment and enhance our communities, and places that give people better, brighter, healthier spaces to live, work and play.

USGBC was excited to offer a variety of special programs, learning opportunities, events and sessions for participants at the 2017 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, the premier event for sustainable building.


Along with our booths at the 2017 conference, many leaders from USGBC were be on-hand to present at Greenbuild 2017.


  • GREEN APPLE DAY OF SERVICE – This annual event gave community members, teachers, students, companies and local organizations the opportunity to transform their local schools into healthy, safe and productive learning environments.     
  • PARKSMART - Formerly known as Green Garage Certification, Parksmart is the world’s only rating system that defines, measures and recognizes high-performing, sustainable garages. Developed by industry experts, Parksmart applies to new and existing facilities and assesses projects in several categories, including parking structure management, programming, design and technology.
  • PEER - The PEER system serves as a tool to accelerate the transformation of the electricity sector. By engaging in the PEER process, power grids have an opportunity to gain a competitive advantage by differentiating their performance, documenting the value produced, and demonstrating meaningful outcomes. 
  • SITES - The Sustainable Sites Initiative (SITES) is the most comprehensive program and toolkit for developing sustainable landscapes. The SITES program offers a comprehensive rating system designed to define sustainable sites, measure their performance, and, ultimately, evaluate the value of landscapes.
