Yet Another Sustainability Group! American High-Performance and Buildings Coalition


We need action, and the implementation of robust facility life-cycle management practices… NOT more groups!

Yet another new coalition has been formed to guide green building standards and support performance-based building codes, standards and rating systems developed in conformance with the American National Standards Institute.

In the meantime, the GSA ( US General Service Administration ) is currently reviewing the use of green building standards by the federal government, and the US Green Building Council (USGBC) is revising its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – LEED – green building rating system.

Members of the latest group include the US Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers, the American Supply Association, the Vinyl Institute, the Centre for Environmental Innovation in Roofing and others, the new coalition is said to “enjoy broad based support.”
