Advocacy Committee

The role of the Advocacy Committee is to coordinate and inform statewide advocates of current USGBC supported legislation and products, and to aid in the strengthening of local green building knowledge and the support and implementation of green building practices throughout the Commonwealth.

In addition to these activities, the Advocacy Committee works as needed with the National USGBC Advocacy Committee to support national initiatives.

We have an Advocacy Resources Page listing our many areas of advocacy work.



One major local issue going on is the City of Boston's Building Energy Reporting & Disclosure Ordinance. Read more about our efforts to support this clearly beneficial project. We are available to help owners and property managers work with the Ordinance to improve the efficiency of their buildings.
