Thursday, October 16, 2008 DVGBC's 6TH Annual Green Building Celebration at the Comcast Center!
Welcome! The Delaware Valley Green Building Council, a chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council, was formed in November 2001 at historic Carpenters’ Hall. Its mission is to advance and promote sustainable and environmentally responsible planning, design, construction and operation of the region’s buildings, landscapes, cities and communities, mindful of the legacy we leave for future generations.
The DVGBC is the primary point of contact for users, agencies, and companies interested in sustainable communities and is a leader in fostering cooperation and collaboration among organizations dedicated to environmental responsibility and green planning, design and construction.
The objective of implementing green building design and construction practices is to improve site planning; to safeguard water and ensure its efficient use; to maximize energy efficiency, conserve materials and resources and insure indoor environmental quality. The goal is to significantly reduce or eliminate the negative impact of buildings on their occupants and on our environment.
