Green Building Initiative


One non-profit organization that stands out in the American green community is the Green Building Initiative. This organization was founded to help local home building associations create and implement green programs for their building communities.

The mission of the Green Building Initiative is to "accelerate the adoption of building practices that result in energy-efficient, healthier and environmentally sustainable buildings by promoting credible and practical green building approaches for residential and commercial construction."

The Green Building Initiative has a very close relationship with the National Association of Home Builders and was also successful with the implementation of the Canadian Green Globes &TM program as an environmental assessment tool in the U.S.
