Announcing Greenbuild Summits

Greenbuild's three virtual summits dive into critical topics within the green building space, offer continuing education credits, and are included with a Greenbuild All Access Pass.

Achieving Our Critical Goals

Sustainability professionals are being tasked with managing organizational initiatives from finding ways to decrease the carbon footprint of their real estate portfolio to implementing a new zero waste program. 

The Green Business Summit is a deep dive that will provide attendees with strategies to organize data and insights to speak to the ROI of these programs. 

Attendees will hear case studies from industry peers who will share their experience in developing and maintaining their own programs and will leave equipped with best practices to apply to their organization’s broader sustainable goals.

About Carol
About Carol

Embracing Our Changing Landscape

The green building movement is scaling up from buildings to communities to cities. Environmental, social, and economic shocks and stressors have the biggest systemic impacts on the most vulnerable of communities and severe weather events are more frequent and intense due to climate change. Disruptions and stressors are becoming a common concern among city officials, building professionals, and residents alike.

We know that more sustainable spaces are the cornerstone to enhancing community resilience at scale and that elevating equity is the landmark strategy in building resilience within the lives of people, their communities, and infrastructure. This summit will convene attendees who are ready to meet community challenges, focus on resilient and equitable outcomes and become fully committed to driving a new way forward.

Improving the Impact of Our Spaces

More critical than ever, the Global Health & Wellness Summit brings industry leaders together to discuss how healthy, accessible spaces are being redefined amid the ongoing climate and global health crises. 

The global green building industry is uniquely positioned to evolve and respond to these challenges and play a significant role in our long-term recovery. 

This year’s Summit program provides an interdisciplinary approach to the new operating manual you need including social equity, materials changes that create healthier spaces, the newest tools for wellness and the case studies you need to hear.
