Summer Coffee Break Series - Green Building Certifications:
GPRO Operations & Maintenance with Johanna Schweiss
Green buildings are better for people, the environment, and the bottom line. They steward natural resources and lower our environmental impacts. Plus they are healthier places for building occupants, which is especially important as everyone has a heightened awareness of healthy spaces.
During construction, renovation, repurposing, demolition, or occupancy, buildings use energy, water, raw materials, generate waste, and emit emissions. This has prompted the creation of green building standards, certifications, and rating systems aimed at reducing the impact of buildings on the natural environment through more sustainable design principles.
In our Summer Coffee Break Series, we will explore a variety of different certifications every other Friday, 10:00 - 10:30 am starting May 28 through September 24, 2021. Join your Green Buildings Are Better community for a quick conversation on current green building certifications. See the full list of events below!

Buildings have a crucial role in the work to address climate change. The GPRO Operations and Maintenance training course (offered, July 26, 27, 28th by USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter) gives building professionals an in depth overview of strategies that improve building energy efficiency, occupant health, and occupant comfort. During the course, participants identify measures that improve building performance, the steps needed to implement them, and the costs and benefits of each - building an action plan to use moving forward.
