U.S. Green Building Council celebrates World Green Building Week

Sept. 13, 2022: This week, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) joins green building councils from around the world to celebrate World Green Building Week. Led by the World Green Building Council, the weeklong awareness campaign spotlights how green buildings, including LEED buildings, can help reduce carbon emissions and support economies around the world. 

“Behind every green building are professionals who design, build and operate these spaces,” said Peter Templeton, interim president and CEO, U.S. Green Building Council. “They are the force driving innovation within the green building movement. As part of World Green Building Week, USGBC aims to highlight the great work that these individuals do every day to create healthy and sustainable communities.” 

This year’s theme is #BuildingForEveryone and highlights the people at the heart of the built environment and shows how green buildings’ holistic approach can accelerate the Sustainable Development Goals and sustainable built environments for everyone, everywhere. 

Throughout World Green Building Week, USGBC will highlight the people and professionals driving the green building movement. USGBC will also announce the 2022 class of LEED Fellows later this week, spotlighting LEED professionals who have demonstrated exemplary leadership, impactful commitment, service, and advocacy in green building and sustainability.
