Justification Toolkit

We understand it can be difficult to ask for approval to attend Greenbuild 2019, November 19-22, so we have created this Justification Toolkit to assist with gaining approval.

The materials in this section offer a greater understanding of Greenbuild and how to communicate the value it provides. With expert advice, pre-conference justification documents and post-conference reporting templates, your manager or supervisor is sure to appreciate the investment made into your training and development as well as to your company's success.
