Global Green 2.0

Global Green USA is the American affiliate of Green Cross International, founded by President Gorbachev, to foster a global value shift toward a sustainable and secure future. For 20 years, Global Green USA has been a national leader in advancing smart solutions to climate change that improve lives and protect our planet.

We create transformative model projects and advance new policies that build sustainable and resilient communities and affordable housing. We help local governments, schools, and public agencies integrate sustainable design, clean energy, and water reduction measures. And we help people reduce waste, live better, and act more sustainably today--and in the future.

Global Green USA has influenced more than $20 billion dollars worth of building construction by encouraging the integration of green building and sustainability practices, and educates millions of people about climate-friendly solutions through its five annual events including the green Pre-Oscar Party. Our impact has been felt across the country, particularly in areas affected by disasters such as Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans where we led green rebuilding efforts and continue to provide assistance and resources to local residents.
