Event Description

In its second generation, the USGBC is guided by four pillars: sustainability, resiliency, health, and equity. USGBC remains committed to a sustainable and equitable world. Now more than ever it is important that we examine programming through each lens of these guiding pillars. The road map forward must ensure a more sustainable, resilient, and healthier world for all.

As part of this continuing engagement, the Mid-Atlantic and New England (MANE) region is hosting a series of thought leadership panels in 2021 to draw attention to issues surrounding each of these pillars. These events will feature leaders from within our communities to discuss the topic at hand, analyze the challenges and offer strategies and pathways to address them.

One of the little-known facts is that the Mid-Atlantic and New England (MANE) region contributes to 22% of the total number of residential units certified to LEED in 2020. You are invited to join a virtual, interactive session on how our region is making an impact in the residential sector with perspectives from developers, builders, operator and owners as we look to 2021 and beyond.

Did you know that the Mayor’s Commission for Persons with Disabilities in the City of Boston introduced a new pilot credit to ensure that new buildings and spaces are accessible and designed with people of all abilities in mind? With that background we celebrate our well-established relationship with our constituents and the design community. We plan to continue having important conversations on creating spaces that promote equity and inclusion for those who live, work and play in our communities.

Attendees will be able to:

  • Identify trends in residential sector in the Middle-Atlantic and New England markets
  • Describe how LEED certification can be flexibly applied to both single-family and multifamily residential projects, for both sale and rental properties
  • Identify challenges to certification pathways
  • Understand how we, as green building professionals, can approach projects to push towards a future that ensures healthier living spaces for all.
