USGBC launches online green building data for states

Home Press Release USGBC launches online green building data for states

Washington, D.C. — The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) launched its new online data visualization resource that highlights real-time green building data for each state in the U.S. and Washington, D.C. The enhanced state market briefs—highlighting LEED projects, LEED-credentialed professionals and USGBC membership in each state—provide green building advocates and the general public a look into LEED’s impact within any U.S. state.

“Our state-level market briefs demonstrate USGBC’s commitment to data and information transparency at an important level of granularity. You can’t find this data anywhere else in the market,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, chief operating officer, USGBC. “The choice to build green buildings is simple. These state-level data visualizations make it even simpler.”

The dynamic market briefs for each state were created to supply green building advocates with on-the-ground information to tell robust stories about the multifaceted benefits of LEED green buildings. Each market brief acts as a state-level barometer of economic activity taking place in an industry that McGraw-Hill projects could be worth up to $248 billion and represent more than half of all commercial and institutional construction in the U.S. by 2016.

Market briefs for countries outside the U.S. are available upon request, and LEED for Homes and LEED for Neighborhood Development data and projects will be added later this year. The market briefs highlight data on cumulative LEED-registered and -certified projects, gross square footage of LEED-registered and -certified space, project totals broken out by owner type and space type, USGBC member organizations by type, LEED professional credential holders, links to chapter(s) serving that state, as well as a project profile scorecard.
