Be the Conduit of Change
The USGBC-OC Chapter’s mission is to engage all Green Building stakeholders to be the conduit of change for a more sustainable Orange County through innovative communication, education, resources and advocacy.
A Vibrant Place to Live, Learn and Play
We envision Orange County to be a vibrant place to live, learn, work and play. USGBC-OC promotes the integration of the built and natural environments to foster sustainable, healthy, and prosperous communities.What We Do
Connecting You with People, Programs and Resources
USGBC-OC connects you with people, programs, and resources for green buildings. These benefits apply to commercial office buildings, single family homes, schools, hospitals, community master plans, retail stores and just about everything in between. The chapter membership includes architects, engineers, contractors, manufacturers, planners, facility managers, corporate real estate managers, consultants, scientists, educators, students, and many more professions.
Events for Education and Networking
The Chapter organizes regular events, workshops, meet-ups, and study groups to provide numerous opportunities for education and networking. We also support the cities throughout Orange County with advocacy resources to assist with the development of incentive programs, code updates, and community development. Our Emerging Professionals group engages young professionals to nurture career growth and networking amongst the future sustainability leaders in the OC. Finally, our communications and education teams stay connected with the constant flurry of activity at USGBC National and pass on the highlights with an eye for local impacts.
Made Possible by Our Volunteers
These programs are made possible through the strength of volunteers, and we encourage you to visit our chapter calendar regularly and join a committee or simply help where you can.
