Eco El Paso was created in 2008 by a group of volunteers from different professional organizations including the American Institute for Architects (AIA), U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), American Society for Heating, Refrigerating, & Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), and various other associations. In 2009, Eco El Paso became a 501(c)3 and since then we have strived to create venues for discussion and collaboration on how El Paso will build-out its future. Eco El Paso provides educational training seminars and presentations from experts in the various trades for residential, commercial and institutional projects.
Mission: Eco El Paso is dedicated to fostering a learning environment for sustainable systems and life styles while integrating workforce and economic development concepts. We do this by promoting eco‐sensitive and energy efficient community planning, building design, construction and facility maintenance in El Paso’s region to professionals in the design, construction, renewable energy, and building maintenance industries.
