Green Builder Media is delighted to announce our fourth-annual Sustainability Symposium.  The event, held on Martin Luther King Day (also the day before the show floor opens at Design & Construction Week, or IBS/KBIS), will explore the nexus between sustainability and social equity; the impact of our changing climate on economic stability; and the resulting effects on national and international markets. 

Sessions will cover:

  • 2020 Sustainability Benchmarks—where have we succeeded, where have we failed, and we go from here
  • Solving for energy and water so that they do not become major inhibitors to growth and prosperity
  • Sustainable innovations that will transform markets
  • The Built Environment Today—are we designing and constructing properly for our changing climate and growing social and economic inequity issues?

Green Builder Media will celebrate our annual Home of the Year Awards winners at a special VIP dinner, held on January 19.  

We invite you to join us as we recognize progress and innovation within the building community!

“There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe nor politic nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him it is right.” 

—Martin Luther King Jr.
