A Flurry of Activity

Spring is here, and as nature bursts to life, Green Builder Media abounds with innovative initiatives.

Taking our lead from the awesome explosion of nature in the springtime, Green Builder Media is buzzing with activity. 


Esteemed green builder CR Herro and I teamed up this week to present a webinar on Millennial Essentials, exploring the growing demand for net-zero, electric, healthy, resilient, connected, and sustainably designed homes.  Whether you’re a building professional or homeowner, check out the webinar recording for hot-off-the-press trends, data, and insights about how this influential audience is transforming the housing market.

Green Builder Media also recently hosted our sixth annual Sustainability Symposium 2022: Roadmap to Decarbonization, during which leading sustainability experts outlined how we can create a net-zero carbon economy with climate solutions that are market available and cost-effective. Check out the playlist of the Sustainability Symposium sessions on our YouTube channel for pioneering information about regeneration, circularity, ESG, and decarbonization solutions for the built environment.
