Initiatives & Impact

We’re working hard to make an impact on the places where we live, work, and learn to ensure a healtheir and greener future.

Building a greener future.

Green Schools

25% of Americans attend school each day as students, faculty and staff (that’s 1.2 million Missourians!) Our green schools programs provide resources that empower schools and students to make choices that support healthy and efficient school buildings, while fostering student and staff health and wellbeing and inspire real-world learning, civic engagement, and the adoption of behaviors benefiting communities and the environment.  

Green Building Education

The exchange of information is a stalwart of our activities. Whether learning about action to reduce our buildings’ carbon footprints, LEED, WELL, Living Buildings or Passive Homes or discussing equity in the built environment - we have green building education on tap for you.
