About Us

The Illinois Green Alliance (formerly USGBC-Illinois) is a member funded and directed non-profit organization working to transform the region’s built environment to become ecologically sustainable, profitable, and healthy. We accomplish this through education, advocacy and collaboration.

 

Founded in 2002, Illinois Green Alliance is the state’s non-profit organization focused solely on green building and community design, construction, and maintenance with a membership that spans the entire spectrum of the Illinois green building community. Our members are driven by a belief that sustainable technology and building practices are key to strengthening neighborhoods and improving the quality of life for everyone.

 

Illinois Green works to engage community leaders and utilize member expertise in education and community outreach through targeted programs and initiatives focused around green homes, communities, schools and existing buildings. With hundreds of passionate members and volunteers who lend their time and expertise, Illinois Green provides nearly 75 educational programs, community engagement events, tours, and advocacy initiatives each year. This exciting list of program opportunities is advertised to our list of over 10,000 online members, past event attendees, and followers.
