HAUPPAUGE, NY -- Innovative Stone LLC has announced its latest partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) to encourage eco-friendly building, education and green advocacy efforts throughout the building industry.

The USGBC is a non-profit organization composed of leaders from across the building industry working to advance buildings that are environmentally responsible, profitable and healthy places to live and work.

"Green building and sustainability is the future," said Karen Pearse, CEO and founder of Innovative Stone. "Becoming a member of USGBC allows us to play a direct role in shaping and driving the green movement."

USGBC corporate members, like Innovative Stone, share the organization's mission of buildings and communities that will regenerate and sustain the health and vitality of all life within a generation. Members are provided the opportunity to participate in USGBC sponsored educational workshops, tradeshows and LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification courses, while having access to a wealth of ongoing industry edification and networking opportunities."

"Now we are among the tens of thousands of companies and individuals taking a step in the right direction, a step toward becoming the building industry's leaders of tomorrow," said Pearse.
