Letter from the Director
Dear Friends and Colleagues: The real estate community has debated the economic benefits of green building for many years. As sustainability has grown into the main stream of business economics, and data has been collected, these benefits have become quantifiable. The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) recently published the Green Building Economic Impact Study (http://www.usgbcnj.org/uploads/2016/03/ Booz_Allen_Economic_Report.pdf) prepared by Booz Allen Hamilton (Booz Allen). The trend and projections are quite impressive for the US, and in particular for the state of NJ.

A growing number of businesses are integrating sustainability into their business plans which in turn transforms the client base and markets of the real estate, design/engineering, and building industries. This also encompasses the entire pipeline of suppliers and services which contribute to the measurement of sustainability compliance and management of our carbon footprint. To support the growth of this evolution, USGBC NJ has expanded our education offerings to address the corporate and real estate sectors as well as our professional development curricula. This includes orientation for corporate executives, the WELL Building Standard, the new State of NJ Energy Code, Net Zero Waste and our core curriculum of LEED a d GPRO. Many of our courses were jointly developed by our corporate and professional chapter leaders who are active practitioners. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information or if you are interested in a private workshop for your organization. Grant funding is available for qualified USGBC NJ members.
