Greenbuild is the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building.
Thousands of building professionals from all over the world come together at Greenbuild for three days of outstanding educational sessions, renowned speakers, green building tours, special seminars, and networking events.
Launched in 2002, Greenbuild is a great opportunity to build new relationships and connect with colleagues from throughout the industry and around the world.
The U.S. Green Building Council is hosting Greenbuild 2012 in San Francisco from Nov. 14-16. This year will be focused on bringing technology and sustainability together in the global green movement.
U.S. Green Building Council
The U.S. Green Building Council was established in 1993 and has grown to be a diverse group of builders and environmentalists, corporations and nonprofits, teachers and students, lawmakers and citizens. Today there are 77 chapters, 13,000 member organizations and 181,000 LEED professionals strong that share the same vision of a sustainable built environment.
Green building is a win-win, offering both environmental and economic opportunity. Greater building efficiency can meet 85 percent of future demand for energy in the United States and a commitment to green building has the potential to generate 2.5 million jobs.
The USGBC has facilitated the establishment of the most widely recognized and widely used green building program across the globe, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). LEED is certifying 1.6 million square feet of building space each day in more than 130 countries. LEED is a certification program for buildings, homes and communities that guides the design, construction, operations and maintenance. Today, nearly 50,000 projects are currently participating in LEED, comprising more than 8.9 billion square feet of construction space.
