Showcasing some of the most impactful success stories from Greenbuild 2018.


Every resource at Greenbuild, including printed materials, carpet, food, and beverage, merchandise, and more is carefully sourced, taking human health, the environment, and the impact on those who made it into consideration.


  • When it comes to sustainable sourcing, the food and beverage offerings at Greenbuild Chicago had the most significant impact. For the first time in Greenbuild’s history, the International Summit, WaterBuild, the Communities & Affordable Homes Summit, the workshops, and the Women in Green Power Lunch featured plated lunches that were 100% vegan.
  • Every year, Greenbuild looks to the WELL Building Standard for best practices and guidance. This year we took actions inspired by the nourishment standards in the rating system, including limiting processed foods, reducing packaging for meals, and eliminating single use plastics. We removed single-use plastic straws and all plastic water bottles. We replaced plastic straws with compostable straws and plastic bottles with all aluminum bottles and cans of water which are easily recyclable and maintain their value in the recycling markets.
