about USGBC Hawaii

The U.S. Green Building Council is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community of leaders working to make green buildings accessible to everyone within a generation. Individuals who want to become involved with green building on a local level in Hawaii can join the USGBC Hawaii Chapter. Chapters are the local voice of USGBC, and chapter members are key to raising awareness about green building. Chapter membership also provides excellent networking opportunities, the chance to serve on committees, and chapter member-rate discounts on chapter events. The Hawaii Chapter is in its early stages and needs members to get involved to help transform Hawaii into the most sustainable state. As we grow we plan to hold more monthly meetings and events for our members, hold more LEED workshops and eventually establish LEED User Groups.


We need you to get involved and help us make this happen.
