Staying on top of environmental and green issues is important for every construction firm, whether you perform highway, building or utility projects. You can visit this page to find resources on environmental compliance and green construction initiatives, to get involved with AGC on environmental issues, or to take action by writing your legislators or the Federal agencies. The forum provides a means to interact with other environmental professionals in the construction industry through task groups, conference calls, and programs. The Observer (10 issues per year) comes directly to your email inbox and is filled with industry perspectives on environmental regulations, green building, as well as related news and events. The Forum is an email listserv group where you can ask questions of your peers. AGC of America regularly advocates for sensible solutions to today’s environmental challenges. Meeting environmental requirements has become a huge and growing responsibility for contractors, delaying if not threatening construction projects and increasing the cost of doing business. To minimize the environmental barriers to business opportunities, environmental policies must be reasonable and achievable. Both Congress and the White House have turned to AGC for common-sense recommendations on streamlining the federal environmental permitting and review processes. AGC of America created resources to diagram and describe the environmental review and permitting process for a federally-funded or federally-permitted infrastructure project in the United States.
