Johnson Controls Recognizes Building Green at Green Tie Event
10 Years of building green celebrated at GreenBuild Conference
MILWAUKEE - During the U.S. Green Building Council's Annual GreenBuild Conference, Johnson Controls hosted the first Green Tie Affair to celebrate the greening of the world building industry and the 10th Anniversary of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
More than 200 sustainability practitioners - organizations that support the green building concept - and 50 companies that have succeeded in sustainable design and development donned green bow ties at the Westin Hotel, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The GreenBuild International Conference & Expo, held Nov. 11-13, is the U.S. Green Building Council's annual meeting place for the green building industry. Thousands of green building industry professionals came together to learn the latest advancements in green building design, construction, project financing and building management. The David J. Lawrence Convention Center, a new facility seeking LEED certification from the USGBC, hosted the event.
Christine Ervin, USGBC President and CEO welcomed the group. Attendees consisted of business leaders, facility managers and green supporters from a wide variety of corporations, organizations and educational facilities as well as members of the USGBC board of directors. This was a fun gala event with "green ties" and a green message; sustainability is the way of the future.
