We are thrilled to announce that the Boulder Green Building Guild is transforming into the Colorado Green Building Guild. Enjoy our new robust website where members can show their certifications, photos and more to consumers and consumers can get the information they need to make more informed decisions about contractors.
The Guild is in a process of rapid transformation as it evolves from a
Boulder-centric "green is hot and new” to a broader organization with a
new vision that says green is for everyone looking for long-term
solutions that control costs, improve health and help foster a
sustainable community. We are excited to take on the challenge of
positioning the Guild to be the organization for tomorrow’s economic
development and sustainable green practices.
In recognition of opportunities to broaden our reach in other
communities and state-wide initiatives, and with a desire to add more
value to our membership, sponsorship, and our organization as a whole,
we are changing our name to the Colorado Green Building Guild and
putting attention toward positioning ourselves as a market leader
Our mission remains the same - to create healthier, resource-efficient homes and workplaces and make green building common practice.
We are still committed to working locally
Our commitment to Boulder County contractors and suppliers remains
the same. All our local networking and educational offerings will stay
the same - we are just creating a wider reach and scope. In the
long-term we envision creating more local sub-groups modeled after what
you have created in Boulder County. We recognize that one of the biggest
values we provide is the opportunity for you to meet one another, learn
from one another, and foster business relationships with one-another.
