Tell us about the work your organization does.
Earth Advantage is a nonprofit focused on accelerating the adoption of green building practices through education, research, and building certifications in the Northwest.
How is your organization working toward implementing goals in the Environmental Sustainability Plan?
We work closely with professionals in the real estate, design, construction, and energy efficiency industries to ensure they have the knowledge and information to build, sell, and financially value homes and buildings that use energy and other resources in a smarter way.
How can people get involved or volunteer with your organization?
There will be participatory opportunities in late 2017 around a new campaign we’re launching in support of zero energy buildings. Stay tuned!
Anything else you’d like to share?
Addressing climate change will occur at the local level with cities like Hillsboro. There is a growing awareness that the actions needed to tackle climate issues will also improve energy security, community resiliency, and local economic vibrancy.
