Today the 7th annual Green Build conference kicks-off, where attendees learn how green building is transforming our communities, and how you can be a leader in this important movement.
Some of the highlights will include an announcement by the U.S. Green Building Council of their new program LEED-for-Homes, which is a certification for residential properties that is similar to the original LEED rating system that was developed for commercial construction.
Green2Green will also be launching from beta during this conference. This non-profit organization features comprehensive information regarding green building products, materials and practices. The site offers side-by-side comparisons of products using a variety of environmental, technical and economic criteria.
