About the Guild Founded by green building pioneers in 1993, the Guild has become a community of construction-related professionals, homeowners, and partners concerned with ecological building in the Pacific Northwest. The Northwest EcoBuilding Guild’s Mission is to support through education the progressive work of our members in the Pacific Northwest in order to improve the relationship between our communities and our built environment. We provide open-source educational tools to the construction industry and the general public in order to encourage building practices that dramatically reduce carbon emissions, are self-sustaining, contribute to local economies, and create optimal conditions for human health and community. We consider the needs of the seventh generation in all that we do and encourage inclusive discourse to that end. We invite you to join us in becoming part of this community.
