"The UA has been and will continue to be leaders in making American homes and businesses more sustainable and energy efficient.  We believe that our commitment to this initiative does not stop once a building has been built or renovated, but throughout the entire life cycle of the building and we are ensuring that our workers have the training to complete this. To compete with the rest of the world, America must become more efficient. Our members are on the front lines of this movement and our participation in the BlueGreen Alliance is crucial to our success.”
