Mission Statement

OUR MISSION is to support through education the progressive work of our members in the Pacific Northwest in order to improve the relationship between our communities and our built environment.

We provide open-source educational materials to the construction industry and the general public in order to encourage building practices that dramatically reduce carbon emissions, are self-sustaining, contribute to local economies, and create optimal conditions for human health and community.

We consider the needs of the seventh generation in all that we do and encourage inclusive discourse to that end.

Within the Guild community there is a strong emphasis on thought-leadership, community, integrity, sustainability, innovation, education and fun. These values are the foundation for all Guild programs, and are carried forward by the Guild Chapters and members alike.

Description

The Northwest EcoBuilding Guild is a 501(c)(3) community of builders, designers, suppliers, homeowners, and partners concerned with ecological building in the Pacific Northwest. The Guild empowers people through education to transform the built environment for long term sustainability.

The Guild was founded in 1993 by a small group of professionals already incorporating green building ideas into their practices. They formed the Guild in order to network, learn and exchange ideas related to their areas of expertise. The Guild has now grown to three chapters serving the diverse bioregions of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and British Columbia.
