Keeping members up-to-date on industry news is an expected and necessary activity of any association. To that end, the Coalition has an agreement in place with Green Builder® Media to provide complimentary digital subscriptions to Coalition members.

The magazine has a readership of over 200,000 of the most active and influential building professionals in the country. Green Builder® Magazine is the most widely-read homebuilding periodical in the United States, and focuses exclusively on disseminating information about green building and sustainable practices to a national audience.


Have you ever been in the middle of a design meeting and had no idea what your client meant when they wanted a home certified with Energy Star IAP? How about when they ask you if geothermal will work for their home?

Like the various standards to which a structure can be built, there are various ways that products and technology can be incorporated into a project. This means that a “one size fits all” approach to answering questions won’t help you achieve your sustainable goals.

A product or technology that is appropriate in one climate zone may be a complete dismal failure in another. But how would you know? Let us assist you in finding out! Our intention is to help reduce the hurdles or obstacles you might face when trying to adopt sustainable products and technologies. By presenting verifiable, unbiased information, we aim to provide the unique feedback you need to design, build or develop a more sustainable future. Whether you’re evaluating options for your next structure, or simply curious about a particular topic, the Coalition is here for you. Please submit your question to


An original publication which keeps our Members current on the latest news, trends and regulations in the sustainable building industry.
