About the U.S. Green Building Council Texas Chapters
The four chapters of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in Texas – Central Texas – Balcones, Chihuahuan Desert, Texas Gulf Coast and North Texas – work to accelerate the adoption of green building and sustainable land development practices in each of their regions. Through education, research, public awareness programs, local and state advocacy activities and networking events, the USGBC Texas Chapters provide a professional community and official voice for those involved in all facets of the green building industry and work to influence those making public and private development decisions across the state.
This is the first time that all of the Texas Chapters of the USGBC have collaborated on an annual event, as well as the first time the USGBC has partnered with the Energy Systems Laboratory to present a program that cuts across our missions and audiences and help bring scientific rigor to the business of green building.
The intent of the green building research sessions at CATEE 2013 is to provide a platform for a variety of rigorously derived green building metrics to be presented, discussed and broadly disseminated, with the objective of providing current, Texas-based data to help developers, builders, architects, state agencies and others make informed development and building decisions and wield their knowledge to influence others. Our goal is to help those involved in LEED and green building projects move the green building market forward in Texas.
