USGBC joins forces with American Chemistry Council

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and American Chemistry Council have agreed to partner to apply technical and science-based approaches to USGBC's LEED® green building certification program. USGBC and the American Chemistry Council will work within LEED's framework to incorporate safety, sustainability and life cycle-based approaches to LEED.

"Modern energy-efficiency gains, building safety advances and carbon footprint reductions would not be possible without the products of chemistry," says American Chemistry Council President and CEO Cal Dooley. "By combining USGBC … with the scientific know-how of the [American Chemistry Council], we can develop a path to stronger, science-based standards that achieve measurable progress in sustainability."
