A.R.E. Commits to Green Building Industry with USGBC Connection

 

HOLLYWOOD, FL - The Association for Retail Environments (A.R.E.) has joined forces with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC)—a nonprofit organization of building industry leaders working to advance high-performance green buildings. The membership underscores A.R.E.'s commitment to the development of retail environments that are environmentally responsible, profitable, and healthy places to work and shop.

As the retail environments authority, A.R.E. is raising the profile of retail environments providers' contribution to the green building industry. With the USGBC, A.R.E. will work to ensure that the retail environments industry maintains a significant presence in the USGBC Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Retail-Commercial Interiors (LEED for Retail-CI).

The association is educating members and retailers about how retail environments elements fit into LEED for Retail-CI through a special Web section, magazine articles, educational sessions at GlobalShop (the A.R.E. Convention), A.R.E. seminars, and other channels. Additionally, A.R.E. serves as the green building industry's definitive resource on retail environments.
