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!
