The U.S. Green Building Council has launched a new online data resource that highlights real-time green building data for each state in the U.S. and Washington, D.C. The market briefs highlight LEED projects, LEED-credentialed professionals, and USGBC membership in each state. According to USGBC, it aims to provide green building advocates and the general public a look into LEED’s impact within any U.S. state.

“Our state-level market briefs demonstrate USGBC’s commitment to data and information transparency at an important level of granularity. You can’t find this data anywhere else in the market,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, chief operating officer for USGBC. "The choice to build green buildings is simple. These state-level data visualizations make it even simpler."

Market briefs for countries outside the U.S. are available upon request, and LEED for Homes and LEED for Neighborhood Development data and projects will be added later this year. The market briefs highlight data on cumulative LEED-registered and -certified projects, gross square footage of LEED-registered and -certified space, project totals broken out by owner type and space type, USGBC member organizations by type, LEED professional credential holders, links to chapters serving that state, as well as a project profile scorecard.

“The ability to tune in to what the green building marketplace looks like in real time is remarkably impactful, no matter what your connection to the industry is,” said Ari Kobb, director of sustainability and green building solutions for Siemens Industry, Inc. “The state market briefs are clean and simple snapshots for each state. As someone who loves to dig into data, especially LEED data, I find this a useful tool for analysis."
