Commuting and Parking Directions

REGISTER NOW ADD TO CALENDAR  DIRECTIONS

Spend a few hours with us to spread awareness that although buildings are major contributors of greenhouse gases, they must be part of climate-related policies because buildings are part of the solution!

Registration required! This event is no-cost but please register here to get more information and help us plan for lunch.

Hand-outs containing talking points will be available on Building Related GHG Emissions, Operational Carbon, and Embodied Carbon.

As professionals and practitioners who work in the built environment, the CTGBC community is uniquely suited to spread awareness of the role that buildings have on GHG emissions in order to spur the adoption of policies to transform the way buildings are designed and constructed in our state.

Learn more about the CTGBC and the Advocacy Committeeour response to the 2020 Legisature's omission of buildings in policy, and our letter to DEEP Commissioner Katie Dykes for Governor Lamont's Executive Order #3.

Get local!  CT's Legislative body is currently in session now through March and legislators are eager to hear what their constituents most care about! Invite your legislators to lunch so you can tell them why green building is so important for fighting climate change and increasing Connecticut's resiliency!  Not sure who they are? Find them here. 

This is your state and your voice, show up and use them to help CTGBC make a difference!

Chapter Highlights

2019 Holiday Party Blast!

Thank you to everyone who attended this year's collaborative holiday party on Tuesday, December 10th! This event was the second time the CTGBC, the Living Future Collaborative, and CT Passive House have joined forces to bring together like-minded individuals to celebrate the holidays and another year of building and promoting sustainability throughout Connecticut.

We celebrated at Brewport Brewing in Bridgeport, networked amongst colleagues and friends, and brought home CTGBC pint glasses. A great way to end the year! 

With close to 70 people in attendance, we want to express immense gratitude to everyone who donated money and goods to the Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County in Bridgeport. Your generosity contributed to welcome baskets for eight families!
