President, CEO & Founding Chairman
U.S. Green Building Council
This week, ForestEthics and others reached out to USGBC to express their views on an important issue: How LEED plays a role in forest protection. I want to thank these organizations and individuals for expressing their passionate views. Since the beginning, USGBC and the process that it set up for the ongoing development of the LEED rating system has encouraged public comment and open dialogue. There are thousands of issues that need to be addressed if we are to achieve our mission of wide-scale market transformation to a built environment that saves energy, saves water, saves precious resources, reduces waste, improves indoor environmental quality and creates jobs. BUT WE NEED YOUR VOICE AND YOUR VOTE.
