Ecological Building Network

EBNet is an open group of engineers, builders and architects developing and disseminating best technologies for the built environment. We provide information that helps reduce the negative impacts of your buildings on the environment, while protecting health and safety. Our reach is global, we are located in Northern California.

We conduct research, develop standards and put on international conferences. One of our projects is The BuildWell Source, a user-built, online library of low-carbon building.
