Build It Green is a building culture catalyzer. We convene stakeholders and develop their capacity to transform the housing ecosystem by offering credible, accessible resources.
We built our reputation on bringing residential green building into the mainstream, but we’ve always known that shifting home building toward more sustainable practices was a starting place, not a destination.
Today, we’re envisioning a new approach to home and neighborhood building that fosters health in the broadest sense — as an interconnected web of personal, community and bioregional well-being.
Why Our Work Matters
Climate change threatens the safety and prosperity of human and planetary systems. We must change the way we design, build, and upgrade our homes to decrease carbon emissions dramatically. In doing so, we'll also create economic opportunity and make homes more affordable and healthy, especially for vulnerable populations.
