Green BuildingWelcome to the Washington State Department of Ecology's green building website. Ecology's Green Building Group provides technical assistance and educational resources to local and state governments, not-for-profit organizations, and Washington residents and businesses to support green building efforts.
The Green Building Group is working to reach goals outlined in the Green Building Initiative of the Beyond Waste Plan, Washington's strategy for managing hazardous and solid waste. This 30-year plan has a clear and simple objective: eliminate wastes and toxics whenever we can and use the remaining waste as resources. Green building has been identified as one of the ways to significantly reduce waste and the use of toxic substances in our state. The long-term goal for green building is to become a mainstream practice throughout the state.
