Dow Building Solutions—business unit of Michigan-based DowDuPont’s Specialty Products Division—has announced that is entering a collaboration with the U.S. Green Building Council.

Both partners are working to develop trainings and “build capacity in the industry to catalyze broader energy efficiency efforts worldwide.”

“Many communities around the world understand the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and are looking for ways to achieve this strategy,” said Greg Bergtold, director of advocacy for Dow Building Solutions.

“We are proud to partner with USGBC, the indisputable leader of third party green building standards and certifications, through our shared vision of creating a sustainable built environment. This partnership will offer expertise from Dow and USGBC that will not only directly help selected communities reduce their carbon footprint, but will also pave the way for other communities to do the same.”

During the partnerships, the duo will collectively advise two cities or communities to help in achieving LEED certification; the two orgnizations note that 2.2 million square feet of space are certified by LEED every day.

“As USGBC aims to accelerate sustainable, healthy and resilient communities, cities and cultures globally, we seek to create partnerships with those that can help address the unique needs of the local community,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, CEO at USGBC.

“By working with Dow, we can extend the reach of the green building marketplace. Together we can create real progress with lasting benefits to the environment and society at large.”
