V2.2 Operations Pilot Management Team

 

The Green Guide’s Construction and Operations toolkits were developed through the generous contributions of time and resources of our volunteer steering committee and working group members.

The Green Guide’s v2.2 Operations section was released in December 2008 after significant revision. To continue the Green Guide’s practice of engaging the broad community of stakeholders to provide feedback to the Green Guide’s best practices toolkits, we are launching the v2.2 Operations Pilot in 2010, in partnership with Practice Greenhealth.
