With all the hype that surrounds green - products, processes, projects - in the commercial and institutional buildings industry, are you seeking the voice of real-world experience?
According to a survey we conducted late last year, you (the Buildings reader) said, “Yes.” Sustainability issues are top-of-mind for your organizations, both in your companies’ strategic philosophy and in your tactical operations. In-print and online, we offer you continuous coverage on the state of sustainability. Now, however, you have an opportunity to meet with your peers and some of the leading professionals in environmental and energy initiatives - face-to-face, shoulder-to-shoulder - to address real world, practical, and financial approaches to the industry’s sustainability processes and challenges.
Packaged with this issue is information on Buildings’ inaugural conference (through its operating unit SBM Live Events LLC): “Best Practices in Sustainability.” Take some time to look through the brochure; it’s sure to pique your interest.
Exciting fundamental practices and cutting-edge projects are the subject of the keynote addresses opening the conference each day: On Monday, co-keynoters Jean Lupinacci-Rausch (from the U.S. EPA’s Energy Star® program) and Rick Fedrizzi (from the U.S. Green Building Council) present “From Sustainability to the Bottom Line: A Winning Strategy”; on Tuesday, Robert Fox (from Cook+Fox) speaks on “One Bryant Park: Global Citizenship Starts at Home.”
Twenty-four seminars in four tracks - Operational Excellence, Energy Efficiencies, Sustainability in Practice, and ROI Real Cost/Real Value - feature professionals who incorporate sustainability in their day-to-day responsibilities and service to the industry. And the focus is on the true value of such initiatives in meeting your company’s financial and performance goals. Think of it as a reality check for your company’s strategic plans.
