Global Green NOLA cover
Description

After the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Global Green USA made a dedicated commitment to the sustainable rebuilding of New Orleans. In 2006, Global Green broke ground on its LEED Platinum Holy Cross Project, a catalytic sustainable village in the Lower Ninth Ward and the result of an international design competition that has been toured by over 25,000 visitors since 2008. Programs like Build It Back Green and the Green Schools Initiative have helped residents recover in more sustainable and resilitent ways. Current New Orleans programs like Water Wise NOLA and NOLA Wise help residents use green infrastructure techniques and save energy, therefore reducing utility bills and helping mitigate the effects of climate change by lessening the use of fossil fuel resources.
