A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) focuses on an open exchange of information regarding sustainable building and maintenance practices.

Signed at Greenbuild in Chicago, the MOU includes the development of documentation practices and procedures that achieve sustainability in construction.

“Key to this is the opportunity for members of each organization to collaborate on the development of practices and procedures to achieve sustainability in construction,” says Walt Marlowe, CSI’s executive director.

As an organization that creates standards and formats for construction documentation and project delivery, CSI says it recognizes the importance of incorporating sustainable building practices and technology into its standards and formats. The collaboration will seek ways to use their respective continuing education networks, as well as training programs, for building product manufacturers and designers to remain current on LEED requirements, CSI says.
