We are in Phoenix this week for the U.S. Green Building Conference’s “Greenbuild International Conference and Expo.” This is the major North American meeting on the topic. More than 20,000 attend, including architects, planners, designers, builders, building owners and managers, government officials and businesses ranging from hotels to colleges to hospitals.
This is the second year that SFI has sponsored Greenbuild. We participate because the meeting provides us a great opportunity to spread the word about SFI to those dedicated to “green building.” SFI certification is recognized by many of the leading green building rating programs used by building professionals to help make decisions about products and practices for both residential and non-residential projects.
I am looking forward to the keynote address from Al Gore, who speaks Wednesday at Chase Field, the Arizona Diamondbacks baseball stadium. More to come on his remarks.
