A member of the HPBCCC's steering committee, the National Institute of Building Sciences is chairing this year's celebration. High-Performance Building Week is one of a number of activities sponsored by the HPBCCC. A private-sector coalition, the HPBCCC provides guidance and support to the High-Performance Buildings Caucus of the U.S. Congress.

The National Institute of Building Sciences, authorized by public law 93-383 in 1974, is a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization that brings together representatives of government, the professions, industry, labor and consumer interests to identify and resolve building process and facility performance problems. The Institute serves as an authoritative source of advice for both the private and public sectors with respect to the use of building science and technology.
