The Green Built Alliance Directory lists regional businesses and organizations that manufacture, design with, sell or promote environmentally sound (green) building products and services.
In 2002, the WNC Green Building Council published and distributed 10,000 copies of its first WNC Green Building Directory. The directory has increased its reach over the years, and 30,000 copies are now distributed annually at 100 locations across Western North Carolina.
In addition, the directory includes educational articles on green building techniques and case studies on regional green built projects. The directory is available to building professionals and the general public through Green Built Alliance’s website and a wide distribution network including regional chambers of commerce, local merchants, supply stores, and realtors in 11 counties: Haywood, Madison, Buncombe, Jackson, Transylvania, Henderson, McDowell, Yancey, Mitchell, Avery and Watauga.
Since the first edition, the annual directory has been a huge success in linking hundreds of businesses to thousands of homeowners. In addition, the Smart Growth Partners of Western North Carolina gave the WNC Green Building Directory its 2002 Environment Award.
Below you’ll find archived copies of this edition along with the directory published every year since then. You can also browse through listings of individual articles published in the directory over the past decade.
