GreenSource Magazine is a bimonthly trade magazine published by McGraw-Hill Construction in New York City which focuses on sustainable design. It is printed on 100 percent post-consumer recycled stock with soy ink and was launched in June 2006 as the sister publication of Architectural Record and the member publication of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). Aimed at the green-design community, it features articles on projects, design processes, technology, products, and environmental issues in the developing sustainable building industry as well as case studies with technical information, weather charts, plans, illustrations, key project energy performance data, and green products used.
The official homepage supports the print publication with social media and community tools as well as daily news, blogs, forums, a video library, and user-generated photo galleries. Monthly features include "Best Green Houses", "LEED-Platinum Portfolio", and "Solution of the Month". The site also features a searchable database of all studies published in the magazine.
