Become an Advocate
Advocacy is an opportunity to use our individual and collective power to support specific causes or policies and is an integral part of USGBC Texas’ work. Our role is to inform, educate, and engage Texans to achieve sound policies and procedures to assure a better-built environment for everyone.
USGBC Texas focuses its advocacy and related actions on government leadership by example, private sector market transformation, raising the bar on codes and regulations, commitment to community-wide sustainability and climate equity, and green schools.
