Green buildings, as represented by the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System of the U.S. Green Building Council, are an undisputed market success. In the ten years since the launch of LEED, green has firmly established itself among mainstream leaders in the building sector, representing tens of billions of dollars in value put in place and materials sales. But do commercial green buildings live up to their name – that is, that they are delivering measurable environmental improvement?
Join Robert Watson, GreenerBuildings.com Executive Editor and LEED’s “founding father,” on November 17th for a fast-paced free webcast: “Building A Green Future: Emerging Trends in the Construction and Maintenance of Green Facilities.” You’ll hear first-hand whether green buildings are really living up to their name. Coinciding with the release of the third edition of GreenBiz.com’s Green Building Market & Impact Report, you’ll learn:
LEED in 2010, and global green building market trends.
Worldwide impacts of LEED on land use, water, energy, materials, and more.
Progress made since 2009, as well as opportunities for further improvement.
Diversey President & CEO Ed Lonergan will also provide a business perspective on the role LEED certification can play in helping companies achieve long-term and sustainable growth through responsible facility management. He will provide insights and give examples of Diversey’s progress in improving the sustainability of its global facilities while partnering with its customers to help them do the same.
Moderated by GreenBiz.com executive editor Joel Makower, this unique event will also include a complimentary copy of the third edition of the Green Building Market & Impact Report.
Find out how LEED buildings are making a major impact in reducing the overall environmental footprint of individual structures, and what steps are necessary if LEED is to contribute in a meaningful way to reducing the environmental footprint of buildings in the U.S. and worldwide.
