History of the Chapter
The Cincinnati Regional Chapter has been integrating with the other Ohio chapters into a single, state-wide Chapter. We are now the USGBC Ohio Southwest Region. Stay tuned as we transition in 2017.
We are the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Ohio Southwest Region. Started in 2002 as the USGBC Cincinnati Regional Chapter, we are dedicated to promoting the Mission and Vision of the USGBC national organization based in Washington DC. The national organization was founded ten years earlier and created the highly successful LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system for green buildings. Since then, the USGBC and LEED rating system has revolutionized the building industry.
Across the country, there are 79 chapters like ours, 14,000 members, and 162,000 LEED accredited professionals. Our goal is the same: mainstream green buildings and sustainable communities within a generation.
