When you partner with Build It Green, your brand is recognized as more than just a part of the building industry, but as a leader in reshaping the way Californians build homes for generations to come.

As a trusted source of information in the residential green building industry, we work with building and real estate professionals, local governments and utilities, and homeowners to increase awareness and adoption of green building practices. Since 2005, we've trained and provided membership services to over 10,000 building industry professionals, engaged hundreds every year through forums, networking events, and continuing education, and had over 14,000 homes GreenPoint Rated.

Through our efforts, we are creating a healthier, more energy- and resource-efficient built environment, one home at a time.
