Building Health Initiative

The USGBC-Northern  California Chapter (USGBC-NCC) is committed to promoting the creation of environments that support improved health, and is launching the Building Health Initiative in recognition that health and wellness are vital components of sustainability and green building.

The Building Health Initiative will:

  • Frame "green" as a health issue
  • Expand the sustainability conversation
  • Elevate the topic within the industry
  • Educate about the health impacts of the built environment
  • Integrate diverse stakeholders

The Building Health Initiative is a two-year program in which Northern California industry leaders from multiple sectors pledge to promote health and wellness, take simple but effective actions to catalyze industry transformation, and create market demand for product transparency and healthy places.

Partners include more than 30 prominent corporations, institutions and organizations. USGBC-NCC is working with these partners to develop a series of educational programs and events through 2014-2015.
