History
Share |
In February 2004, a group of building professionals decided it was time to make a significant, positive impact on the Boulder community. Boulder was the first city to create mandatory green building standards, called "Green Points," for all new residential structures and renovations larger than 500 square feet. However, these builders felt inspired to develop more stringent standards that reflect the increasing need to build healthier and more resource-efficient living spaces.

Although each of the professionals contributed to green building individually by creating high quality, durable structures, they realized that their ability to build green homes and workplaces was limited by the lack of available and affordable green building products as well as the misinformed homeowners and building professionals with whom they worked on a daily basis. They formed the Boulder Green Building Guild to fill this education gap. They reasoned that if people understood the tangible benefits of green building, why would anyone build anything below this standard? After all, green building is simply good building!

In 2011 the Board of Directors voted to transition the Boulder Green Building Guild into the Colorado Green Building Guild in order to evolve 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 foster a sustainable community.
