Real-Time Green Building Data Now Available – An Industry First


May 21_USGBC Launches Green Building Data Resource
The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is one step closer to achieving its goal of market transformation by making “the choice to build green buildings…even simpler,” says Mahesh Ramanujam, the USGBC’s chief operating officer.

USGBC launched a new online data visualization resource on April 23, which offers a comprehensive but easy-to-understand look at the green building marketplace in any U.S. state at any given time. With this new resource, building professionals now have unprecedented access to a wealth of real-time LEED® data and information, including:

  • Number of LEED-registered and –certified projects
  • Gross square footage of LEED-registered and –certified space
  • Number of LEED-credentialed professionals
  • Number of USGBC members
  • Project Profile Scorecard

No other organization provides insight to this level of data and information, according to Ramanujam. The USGBC believes the transparency of information will equip green building advocates – both building professionals and enthusiastic consumers alike – with the right tools to continue driving the sustainable building movement into the mainstream.

Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating has been a proud member of USGBC since 2007.
