We are a chapter of the national non-profit U.S. Green Building Council. Our mission is to transform the way buildings and communities on the west coast of Florida are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life. We are environmentally-minded, data driven, business people, primarily working in the real estate industry (architects, engineers, builders, planners, developers.) However, our membership is broad and also includes lawyers, bankers, educators, elected officials, etc. We are youthful, hopeful, and hip.
