Why do we need USGBC TX Best Practices Champions?

Less than twenty percent (20%) of all new construction is built above minimum code.  This means that we are failing eighty percent (80%) of the time to implement better designs, advanced technologies or world class policies and processes.  More significant is the fact that very few Best Standards of Care project betterments ever make it into underserved communities.  The USGBC TX Best Practices Committee is committed to identifying and knocking down all obstacles preventing equitable pathways for everyone to live, learn, work and play in places that are healthy, safe, and prosperous. 

Who are our USGBC TX Best Practices Champions?

USGBC TX Best Practices Champions are Built Environment Professionals, Community Nonprofits and Individual Advocates who have been able to find pathways to implementing policies, designs, technologies, processes, etc. that are better than minimum code and create healthier, more efficient and prosperous communities.  Texas has many of these passionate individuals.

The link below will take you (must be a USGBC TX Member or associate Nonprofit) to our USGBC Texas Best Practices Champions searchable database where you can determine who within your local Region might best help you create your own pathways to success.
