CINCINNATI — Green Builder Media (GBM), a provider of green building and sustainable development information and services, will launch Green Builder College, an online educational platform that will certify building professionals as ‘Green Builders,’ beginning in November, according to Sys-Con Media. The program teaches building professionals how to incorporate sustainable systems and practices into their projects, leading to the development of more environmentally appropriate structures.
Also, through a partnership with the NAHB Research Center, GBM has launched the Defining Green VISION House program, a comprehensive market research and laboratory-testing project to generate information about green building, including builder and consumer purchasing patterns and expectations for the future.
“We are extremely excited to help define the concept of green building,” said Sara Gutterman, CEO of GBM. “We have a unique opportunity to change the way building professionals and home owners view residential construction and how they can have a positive impact on the environment.”
