The United States Green Building Council (USGBC) is a nonprofit organization that promotes sustainable development and green building construction. With roughly 15,000 members, the USGBC brings together professionals from every sector of the building industry which includes the private sector aswell as state and federal agencies. The goal of the USGBC is to promote green building practices to make green buildings available to everyone. The USGBC offers courses and seminars on sustainable development and promotes the collective efforts of green building organizations by hosting conferences and meetings all across the country. The USGBC is best known for their Leadership in Energy andEnvironmental Design (LEED) program. This program provides a system of standards and ratings for environmentally sustainable building projects. The procedure that developers must go through is a completely transparent process in which points are given for different aspects of sustainability that are included in the project. This rating process all counts towards a building’s LEED certification. LEEDcertification has become the standard for green building projects and likely will be for years to come.

Since April 2009 GBCI administers the LEED project registration and certification processes. Learn more: Building Certification LEED Professional Credentialling Exams
