What would Philly be like if 30K sustainability-minded folks visited for a few days to talk about green efforts? Enter Greenbuild 2013.
Next year, The Greenbuild International Conference and Expo will take place in Philadelphia, officially hosted by the Delaware Valley Green Building Council (DVGBC). Since 2002, the world’s largest conference dedicated to green building has featured speakers, industry showcases, LEED workshops, and tours of the host city’s green buildings.
“This really puts Philly on the map in terms of the all the sustainability going on here,” said Christine Knapp of the Energy Efficient Buildings Hub (EEB Hub), a group based in the Naval Yard, started last year by the Department of Energy with a goal of a 20% reduction in regional building energy usage by 2020.
