New Orleans Office
After the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Global Green USA made a dedicated commitment to assist in the sustainable rebuilding of New Orleans. In 2006, Global Green broke ground on its LEED Platinum Holy Cross Project, a catalytic sustainable village in the Lower Ninth Ward and the result of an international design competition that has been toured by over 25,000 visitors since 2008. Programs like Build It Back Green, Green Schools Initiative and NOLA Wise have helped residents recover and retrofit their homes to be more energy and water efficient. Current New Orleans program Water Wise NOLA helps residents use green infrastructure techniques to prevent localized flooding, increase water quality and decrease subsidence.
