WILMINGTON, N.C. - Sept. 22, 2014 - PRLog -- North Carolina — The U.S. Green Building Council – North Carolina Chapter (USGBC NC) Board of Directors announces that a provisional branch has been added to the organization that will allow for better service to citizens in coastal North Carolina.  At the same time that USGBC NC is working to strengthen the organization through its existing branches in the Triangle, Piedmont-Triad, and Charlotte Regions, it is expanding at the coast.  The mission of the USGBC NC is to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life.

For over a year, the USGBC NC and the Cape Fear Green Building Alliance (CFGBA) have been exploring opportunities to work together to advance their parallel missions.  As conversations progressed, it became clear that we should work to make CFGBA a part of USGBC NC and that with their leadership and passion CFGBA would be a true asset. Board of Directors, staff and volunteer leaders from each organization worked to define and formalize the process, and, on August 25, 2014, CFGBA became the Cape Fear Provisional Branch of USGBC NC.

“USGBC NC is pleased to have a like-minded group of volunteers in the Wilmington area to promote sustainable communities”, said USGBC NC Executive Director, Emily Scofield.
