The USGBC Texas Best Practices App gives building and community Creators and Inhabitants equal access to the full social, environmental, and financial impacts of complicated design, construction, process, and policy decisions in real world dollar value outputs.
Why USGBC Texas Best Practices Champions?
Less than twenty percent (20%) of the design, construction, or operation of our buildings is performed above lowest first-cost minimum-code requirements. Therefore, as an industry, we built environment professionals fail eighty percent (80%) of the time to implement proven designs, mature advanced technologies or world class policies and processes that would immediately increase community sustainability and resiliency, as well as occupant health and profitability. Most notable is the fact that these "Best Standards of Care" betterments almost never make it into projects in underserved communities.
The USGBC Texas Best Practices Champions are committed to identifying and knocking down any and all obstacles preventing equitable pathways for everyone to live, learn, work and play in places that are healthy, safe, efficient, and prosperous.
