USGBC

The U.S Green Building Council® (USGBC) is committed to a prosperous and sustainable future for our nation through cost-efficient and energy-saving green buildings.

With a community comprising 79 local affiliates, more than 16,000 member companies and organizations, and more than 160,000 LEED Professional Credential holders, USGBC is the driving force of an industry that is projected to contribute $554 billion to the U.S. gross domestic product from 2009-2013. USGBC leads an unlikely diverse constituency of builders and environmentalists, corporations and nonprofit organizations, elected officials and concerned citizens, and teachers and students.

Buildings in the United States are responsible for 39% of CO2 emissions, 40% of energy consumption, 13% water consumption and 15% of GDP per year, making green building a source of significant economic and environmental opportunity. Greater building efficiency can meet 85% of future U.S. demand for energy, and a national commitment to green building has the potential to generate 2.5 million American jobs.

Fujitec North America became members of the U.S. Green Building Council in April of 2011. Fujitec is making strides to get involved in USGBC local and regional chapters through active involvement and advocacy. Fujitec is committed to contributing in every way to sustainable and energy-efficient buildings across the nation.
