US Green Building Council – The Education and Awareness Partner

The US Green Building Council North Florida Chapter is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of leaders and visionaries from all segments of the development industry and public, including product manufacturers, environmental organizations, building owners and professionals, utilities, city government, research institutions, professional societies, public schools and universities, and homeowners.  This diverse representation provides a unique, integrative platform for us to achieve our vision of a sustainable community in North Florida inspired by green building within a  generation.  Our mission is to promote sustainable development and green building in our region through open, collaborative education and leadership.  It is this commitment to education and awareness that drives our desire to create a Sustainability Resource Center.

The CRC Institute – The Job Creation Partner

The CRC Institute was created in October 2009 to redeploy a workforce in the new green jobs economy by training the unemployed and underemployed to become solar installation technicians and green construction technicians.  The students complete eight weeks of intensive training under the tutelage of experienced instructors that offer both hands-on training and theory of green and renewable concepts.  Through partnerships with the City of Jacksonville and Florida State College of Jacksonville, the CRC Institute has trained nearly 100 students to become trained technicians.

We are also very happy to have several other very important strategic partners already committed to the project such as:

Jacksonville Electric Authority

The City of Jacksonville’s Office of Sustainability

The Jacksonville Economic Development Commission

Without the help of these organizations, the Sustainability Resource Center would still be a twinkle in our eye.  Thanks for believing in the project!
