The High-Performance Buildings Caucus of the U.S. Congress was formed to heighten awareness about the major impact buildings have on our health, safety and welfare as well as the opportunities to design, construct and operate high-performance buildings that reflect our concern for these impacts. The Caucus is bipartisan and is co-chaired by a member of Congress from both major political parties. The High Performance Building Coalition was created to support the efforts of this Caucus.
