Practice across multiple disciplines. Policy across every facet of government. People with ideas, influence and inspiration. These are the pillars of our movement and celebrating the icons who advance and define them is the essence of Greenbuild. Against the backdrop of polarized body politics in the US and political and social upheaval across the globe, California’s popular Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, USGBC’s outgoing CEO Rick Fedrizzi, and other powerful voices delivered a fast-paced, passion-filled discussion about the issues of our times: climate change, social equity and the profound need for environmental focus in every corner of the globe.
We also heard award-winning author, Sebastian Junger, draw significant parallels between the battlefield and Corporate America, providing important lessons that offer companies a tangible edge over their competition.
We hope you were able to join us for this event and invite you to check back in late spring 2017 for updates on the Plenary & Celebration planned for Greenbuild 2017 in Boston.
