Mexico. The Green Building Council (USGBC) announced that Greenbuild, the largest sustainable construction congress in the world, will arrive in Mexico City from the 19 to the 21 in June of 2018.
Greenbuild Mexico will be held in conjunction with Sustainability for Mexico AC (SUMe) and will provide a forum for the sustainable construction community to come together, change and touch lives, revolutionize business and address essential issues such as air quality, health human, energy use and global climate change.
"Architects, builders, energy companies, urban planners, companies and the government of Mexico are working to create the sustainable cities of tomorrow," said Mahesh Ramanujam, president and CEO of USGBC and Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI). "Mexico is home to almost 1 thousand LEED certified projects, with a total of 31 million gross square meters of certified space." Taking Greenbuild to Mexico this year will help continue to build the local base of sustainable buildings and will engage the industry more strongly "he added.
During the event, you will have the opportunity to hear the vision of industry leaders about the future of sustainable construction in Mexico. Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to them, build professional and business relationships, and participate in workshops and obtain the latest research on the subject.
In 2017, the GBCI and SUMe created the GBCI Mexico with the objective of expanding access to sustainable construction resources.
With an office in Mexico City, the alliance will provide more support and access to training in GBCI programs, including LEED. "Today more than ever we have the opportunity to grow the sustainability industry in our country," said Luis Alberto Vega, president of SUMe. "We all talk about it and directly or indirectly we are participating in actions to improve the living conditions of those who inhabit this planet." Mexico is a reference for the Latin American region and joint actions such as the GBCI Mexico and Greenbuild Mexico reflect the effort and interest we have to act now. "
