Event Description

Did you know that the commercial building sector is responsible for almost 40% of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide? Have you heard of “sick building syndrome”? The majority of humans spend about 90% of their lives indoors, so our indoor environment has big implications on our health and wellness. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light the importance of indoor air quality, something USGBC has been aware of and working to improve for decades. Join us to learn about how the U.S. Green Building Council is working to make our world more sustainable, healthy, and resilient, with a focus on the need to raise the living standard of all humans.
