Missouri Gateway Chapter News

As the green building advocate for the region, it’s our job to promote, educate and guide transformation of the area’s built environment. We work with educators, municipal officials, building owners, design and construction  professionals and the public to make this happen every day. A LEED® Silver building ordinance for the City of St. Louis. Grants to advance green building in Missouri. A National Chapter award from the U.S. Green Building Council. And the new Growing Green Awards, recognizing regional people and organizations for excellence in green building and sustainable practices. It’s what we do.
