USGBC Green Schools

Why green schools? 20% of America goes to school every day. Too many of these students and teachers attend schools that are inefficient and miss important opportunities to reduce operational costs, foster learning and protect student health.

Public and private schools alike are realizing that going green is a no-brainer. If a green school saved $100,000 per year in operational costs, that's roughly enough to hire two new teachers, buy 200 new computers, or purchase 5,000 new textbooks. Learn more about Green Schools
