USGBC Launches Real-Time Green Building Data

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) launched its new online data visualization resource, which provides real-time green building data in every U.S. state and Washington D.C. The tool highlights LEED projects, LEED-credentialed professionals and USGBC membership in each state to provide a comprehensive look into the market.

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. USGBC prioritizes data transparency and access through its data access policy campaign, its Green Building Information Gateway and as a joint organizer of the Data Access and Transparency Alliance.
