Global Green: 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.

Global Green creates transformative model projects and advances new policies that build sustainable and resilient communities and affordable housing. The organization helps local governments, schools, and public agencies integrate sustainable design, clean energy, and water reduction measures, and also helps 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 they’ve educated millions of people about climate-friendly solutions through their annual events, including the green event of the year, their Pre-Oscar Party. Their impact has been felt across the country, particularly in areas affected by disasters such as Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans where they led green rebuilding efforts and continue to provide assistance and resources to local residents.
