Mission Statement

To educate individuals and promote the design, construction, and operation of buildings and the built environment in Kentucky that are environmentally responsible places to live, work and learn.

Description

The Kentucky U.S. Green Building Council and its volunteer members are connecting business owners, homeowners, educators, like-missioned organizations, building design and construction teams and policy makers with sustainable approaches to today’s pressing energy, environmental and economic issues.

We celebrate more than 400 LEED projects in Kentucky, and the 1000+ LEED accredited professionals who help design, construct, operate and maintain them. LEED stands for "Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design."

Our Aims

  • Develop an organization of excellence to solidify the Chapter’s capacity to impact market transformation within the Commonwealth of Kentucky to a sustainable built environment.
  • Provide the education and forum for dialogue with all stakeholders including Kentucky’s underserved population to drive an overall increase in the market’s capacity for sustainable development and access to all.
  • Advocate for public policy advancing the mission and vision of USGBC and educate policy leaders in the advantages of the LEED system as a standard for green building and neighborhood development.
