Make Buildings Part

of the Recovery

We formed BuildingAction to ensure that the transformation of buildings plays an important role in major policy debates. Right now, there is no more critical policy goal than addressing the health and economic consequences of COVID-19.

 

As Congress and the White House debate how to facilitate the economic recovery, it is vital that buildings are part of the conversation.

 

The building sector is a major part of the economy, accounting for more than 18 percent of GDP. Healthy, sustainable buildings keep people safe, reduce energy costs and protect the environment.

 

That's why we drafted a letter to Congress and the President calling on them to advance national bipartisan policies that help get the building sector back on the job designing, constructing and operating buildings that enhance public health and sustainability.
