Regenerative, Carbon Neutral and Just Communities Showcasing Actionable Outcomes
U.S. Green Building Council for the past 30 years has been transforming how buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous economy. From green building technology and innovation to knowledge-sharing and success stories, USGBC has catalyzed the green building movement and empowered the ecosystem with the tools and resources to adopt and accelerate sustainable and equitable urban practices. USGBC’s LEED for Communities program works with more than 150 projects globally, revolutionizing the way communities are planned, developed and operated to improve their overall sustainability and quality of life. This LEED framework encompasses social, economic and environmental performance indicators and strategies with a clear, data-driven means of benchmarking and communicating progress.
USGBC proposes to organize three panels on September 20 showcasing 15 global projects for 9am-12:30pm at Thornton Tomasetti offices and coordinate a site visit to one of the projects in Brooklyn for 2:30-4pm.
