In 2002, the WNC Green Building Council published and distributed 10,000 copies of its first WNC Green Building Directory. The directory lists regional businesses and organizations that manufacture, design with, sell or promote environmentally sound (green) building products and services.
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 the WNCGBC’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.
The 2002-2003 Directory was 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.
