USGBC To Work With Masonry Trade

The United States Green Building Council (USGBC) is ready to work closely with the masonry industry on the continuing development of LEED criteria for masonry in relation to sustainability. There will be an ongoing sharing of technical information, panels on designing green with masonry, and a program involving sending industry experts to speak to the sustainability issue. In the past, USGBC has not allowed trade associations into their membership, however, that issue is now under discussion and a decision will be reached soon. In the meantime USGBC is committed to a strong alliance with the industry and its associations such as the National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA) because LEED is definitely here to stay. It is important to recognize that all parts of the industry must work together to ensure that it is the best system possible
