The Colorado Green Building Guild is a non-profit trade organization representing a wide range of green building leaders, and enjoys a collective collaboration to serve the community at large.


About CGBG

Founded in 2004, the guild was the vision of a group of building professionals who decided it was time to make a significant, positive impact on the Boulder community. Boulder was the first city to create mandatory green building standards, called "Green Points," for all new residential structures and renovations larger than 500 square feet. These builders, however, felt inspired to develop more stringent standards that reflected the increasing need to build healthier and more resource-efficient living spaces. Although each of the professionals contributed to green building individually by creating high quality, durable structures, they realized that their ability to build green homes and workplaces was limited by the lack of available and affordable green building products, as well as the misinformed homeowners and building professionals with whom they worked on a daily basis. They formed the Boulder Green Building Guild to fill this education gap.

In 2011 the Board of Directors voted to transition the Boulder Green Building Guild into the Colorado Green Building Guild in order to develop a broader organization with a new vision that says green is for everyone looking for long-term solutions that control costs, improve health and foster a sustainable community. 

Colorado Green Building Guild continues to strive to ensure the widespread adoption of sustainable practices to increase the efficient use of resources, create healthier buildings, and support vibrant, sustainable communities throughout Colorado. Through community events, from educational workshops and themed seminars, to Happy Hours, Green Home Tours and networking opportunities, the guild offers its members, sponsors and partners the chance to share their knowledge, increase their business opportunities, support a clean energy economy and make sustainable building common practice throughout the state.

Our Board of Directors

Each year, the Guild holds elections for new board members, who serve for two years. The board is made up of qualified members who are dedicated to advancing the craft of green building in Boulder County and passionate about leading this organization to the next level. Call for applications will be put out in November, and our next election will be held in January 2019. Anyone who is interested in applying should email us at admin@cgbgonline.org with a bio for the board’s consideration.
