The event, hosted by the US Green Building Council (USGBC), brings together green building leaders from throughout Europe, and celebrates the industry’s accomplishments in creating a more sustainable built environment, and a better quality of life for all.
“Europe is at the forefront of green building,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, president and CEO of the USGBC.
“With Europe’s remarkable leadership, Dublin, Ireland, is the perfect location for Greenbuild Europe as we work toward our vision of green buildings for everyone.”
Greenbuild Europe will feature sessions covering all aspects of sustainable design, construction and operations for buildings and communities, including their impact on people, the environment and the economy.
Greenbuild attendees will learn about LEED v4 and v4.1, building performance, energy efficiency, codes, market trends, health and wellbeing, the business case for green building and more.
Other topics at Greenbuild Europe will include communities and cities, building performance and smart buildings, codes and certification, and European market trends.
USGBC will partner with the Irish Green Building Council (IGBC) for the event. “We are delighted to welcome Greenbuild to Dublin as a chance to showcase the great work that has been done in Ireland,” said Pat Barry, CEO, IGBC. “With action on climate change now a top priority for the Irish government, Greenbuild Europe will showcase solutions from the building sector. We are looking forward to sharing ideas and best practice in green building with professionals from Europe and around the world.”
Registration for Greenbuild Europe will open in autumn 2019. Sponsorship opportunities are currently available. See greenbuild.usgbc.org/europe for more information.
