Top Takeaways from Greenbuild 2015

Seven SIG team members attended Greenbuild 2015 in Washington, DC earlier this month. As always the high energy and shared enthusiasm of this conference gave everyone plenty to talk about and lots of inspiration for the year ahead. 

A few of the top takeways were:
•  WELL Building Standard - there was a strong focus on occupant health and well-being.
•  LEED is growing overseas in China, India, Middle East, South/Latin America, Germany, etc.
•  James Cameron was the opening keynote speaker and gave an interesting talk on Climate Change and his vegan diet.

Read all of our top takeaways, here. And see more Greenbuild photos, here.
