Urban Green Council


Urban Green Council is the New York affiliate of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Our mission is to transform NYC buildings for a sustainable future. We believe the critical issue facing the world today is climate change. Our focus on climate change requires us to focus on energy and other resource management. As we improve energy and other resource management, we can deliver a more resilient, efficient, healthy and affordable city.

A non-profit organization established in 2002, Urban Green is funded by contributions from foundations, its members, and corporate sponsors. Our in-house experts and a dedicated network of volunteers are helping to transform the built environment in New York City with models that can be replicated in urban centers nationwide.
