Let’s talk about the future.
In theory, the future is an endless horizon stretching out ahead of us.
But here in the green building community, where we chart our progress by data as much as by dreams, it’s something far more within our reach.
The future is a unit of measurement. And we know exactly how far we need to go to rise to its challenges.
But first, we must consider how far we’ve come as a community over the last 25 years. Green building has grown into a trillion-dollar industry. USGBC is the backbone of that business and, more importantly, a global force for improving the living and working conditions of people in 167 countries and territories across the globe. LEED is the most widely used green building program in the world. And with more than 20,000 global attendees each year, Greenbuild, supported by our conference partner Informa, has become the largest thought leadership platform of its kind.
Our community’s goal has always to been to create a better future for the next generation, and that goal is as timely and relevant as ever.
But here’s the truth: The future is here.
