BuildingGreen helps architects, designers and other sustainability professionals make their projects greener and healthier.

BuildingGreen Premium membership gives you access to:
  • Feature articles: We bring you fully up-to-speed on complex topics like materials toxicity, certifications, and integrated design.
  • News analysis: How will trends like wellness, transparency tools, and new research into IAQ affect your profession? We break news down to the essentials and provide expert opinions.
  • Webcasts: We bring members the best-of-the-best presentations on LEED v4, energy modeling, the PVC debate, and many more topics, with the most engaging speakers from our network.
  • CEUs: Every month we offer new education options, automatically reported CEUs for AIA, GBCI, and ILFI, and above all, no fluff.
  • Product guidance: Nearly 200 concise guides to help you navigate what’s truly sustainable in key product categories—and help you avoid what’s low-performing and greenwash.
  • Curated product collections: We not only tell you what to look for—our independent panel of experts carefully curate lists of the highest-performing products for our members.
  • Designer Pages platform: Members get access to our Designer Pages platform, a partner site that supports designer-friendly but data-rich product research, supported by our filters and transparency data.
  • Product reviews: New “green” products and programs are like catnip to our curiosity. We’ll tell you what’s legit and make you aware of any downsides, to mitigate your risk.

Academic subscribers get access to the "Premium" membership. (Individual subscribers unafiliated with any institutional membership may choose either a basic or a premium membership.)
