green building history
“Green” Building History
  • “Green” building system components can be traced back to 1851¹
  • Modern “green” building movement gained North American popularity during the 1930s and again in the early 1970s¹ ²
  • The Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) rating system was developed by professional practitioner volunteers²
  • The US Green Building Council (USGBC) began in 1993 & launched the LEED system in 1998²
  • Many Fortune 500 firms in support of LEED certification both as building owners and product manufacturers³
  • Texas serves as a leader with nearly 100 LEED certified buildings and over 700 registered projects⁴
