The green building community is growing bigger, stronger, and more global each year. Thanks to the leadership of our sister green building councils, member organizations, industry leaders, policy makers, and sustainability champions, green building has become a global movement.
The green building community and LEED share some impressive global statistics:
- Over 200,500 LEED professionals around the world
- LEED is used in over 150 countries
- The 2015 Greenbuild Conference & Expo has attracted attendees from over 70 countries to date
- 43% of gross square footage of space pursuing LEED certification is outside the USA
- The World GBC community now has over 105 councils and prospective groups championing industry-led market transformation
The Greenbuild International Conference & Expo is our biggest and best chance all year to connect in person. But with the show predicted to bring in over 25,000 attendees and 600 exhibiting companies to Washington, DC, it can feel like a very, very big world.
International delegations make it possible for professionals and practitioners from around the world to make the most of the Greenbuild experience. Delegations of 15 or more attendees can take advantage of special member rates, a meeting room, and the ability to connect with USGBC staff and other delegations. Best of all, you can stay connected to other professionals from your country or region, and together bring the best of Greenbuild home with you.
Many of our sister green building councils are organizing delegations, and attendees can apply to be a part of the delegation even if you have already registered for the conference. Reach out to your national council today. You can participate as a delegate by purchasing a pass to any one of the following events: International Summit, the Greenbuild Expo, or a full Conference Pass. The deadline for delegations is October 5.
