WASHINGTON – U.S. Green Building Council announced the re-launch of its Web site -- www.usgbc.org, just prior to the start of the Council's Greenbuild conference and exposition. USGBC said the re-launched Website is cleaner, smarter and more user friendly. Visitors will find everything they need with fewer clicks while exploring the tens of thousands of pages of content available at www.usgbc.org.

"We’re thrilled to announce the revamping of usgbc.org, just in time for Greenbuild 2007," said Rick Fedrizzi, president and CEO of the USGBC. "The updated website was designed with the building community in mind, and will be an invaluable resource for all of our visitors."

Highlights of the Website include a resource section designed to make LEED project credit templates more accessible; easier access to online reference guides and LEED reference documents; more resources for members and chapters; a USGBC store to purchase workshop materials and publications; and a more comprehensive listing of educational offerings and workshops.

The U.S. Green Building Council is the nation’s leading nonprofit organization composed of corporations, builders, universities, government agencies, and other nonprofit organizations working together to promote buildings that are environmentally responsible, profitable and healthy places to live and work. Since its founding in 1993, the Council has grown to more than 12,000 member companies and organizations, a broad portfolio of LEED programs and services, the industry’s popular Greenbuild International Conference and Expo (www.greenbuildexpo.org), and a network of 72 local chapters, affiliates, and organizing groups.
