Green buildings provide greater energy efficiency, saving money for owners and users, and the reuse of materials is better for the environment.  Ultimately, they foster a happier and healthier workplace for employees. In partnership with the Texas Gulf Coast Chapter of the US Green Building Council, the Green Building Resource Center, within the LEED Gold Houston Permitting Center, hosts periodic programs to educate the public about green building practices.
