The U.S. Green Building Council and the National Environmental Education & Training Foundation, both based in Washington, D.C., have partnered to launch a new website: GreenerBuildings.com.

Visitors to the site will find information on a range of topics, including architecture and design, building materials, energy use, facility management, interiors, land use, waste management and water use. The site also includes a calendar of green building events, a series of backgrounders on green building topics and guest columns.

"I can't think of a single subject within the entire environment-based field that has as massive an education challenge as green buildings," said Kevin Coyle, President of NEETF. "This new website is a critical step in meeting that challenge."

"USGBC is committed to providing resources to further the green building movement," said Rick Fedrizzi, President and CEO, U.S. Green Building Council. "Greenerbuildings.com is another tool for reaching even broader audiences with the green building message."
