The building sector is at risk of increasing its impact on global warming. USGBC has made its own commitment to climate action, and in 2017 signed on to the We Are Still In Pledge demonstrating our organizational and collective commitment to the Paris Agreement goals. At USGBC, virtually all of our platforms and activities - rating systems, education, advocacy, partnerships, events - have a connection to reducing our impact on climate.
