Global Green USA operates as a national environmental organization. It specializes in green building, green schools, green urbanism, green housing, resource recovery, weapons elimination, renewable energy, energy efficiency and classroom education. The company was founded by Diane Meyer Simon in 1993 and is headquartered in Santa Monica, CA.
The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and its community are changing the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated.
We believe in better buildings; places that complement our environment and enhance our communities. Places that give people better, brighter, healthier spaces to live, work and play.
Green building is a win-win, offering both environmental and economic opportunity. Greater building efficiency can meet 85 percent of future demand for energy in the United States and a commitment to green building has the potential to generate 2.5 million jobs.
