"The green-building movement offers an unprecedented opportunity to respond to the most important challenges of our time, including global climate change, dependence on non-sustainable and expensive sources of energy, and threats to human health."

Highlights of the Greenbuild365 website include:
  • Course Catalog: Third-party-reviewed green building courses featuring USGBC's core LEED offerings, as well as courses approved by the Education Provider Program.
