Branch Initiatives

We are most excited about opportunities to provide quality education options for LEED APs and people excited about sustainable construction in our environmentally sensitive region. 

We strive to provide knowledge-sharing and a support network for sustainability-minded professionals throughout SWFL.

We aim to be a respected voice promoting smart, responsible development in a region that depends heavily on its natural resources and environments for its continued success.

To help our community -- project teams and the public -- celebrate its successes in sustainable education, development and construction in our region such as at the beautiful Naples Botanical Gardens.
