ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENT

BOMA Delegation Participates at Greenbuild Conference

A substantial BOMA delegation was part of last month’s Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, the massive annual gathering of “green” building professionals. BOMA International Chair-Elect Shelby Christensen and Vice Chair Mark Dukes joined advocacy staff members John Bryant, Ken Rosenfeld and Maria Balzer-Pisciotta for the event, held this year in Atlanta. BOMA International is a longtime association partner of the event, which attracts thousands of attendees, bringing together a wide variety of perspectives dedicated to sustainability in the built environment.

 

This year’s conference was headlined by former President Barack Obama, whose keynote remarks included an on-point reminder of the need to consider who bears the brunt of costs and mandates when developing “green” policies. The line-up of education sessions included a range of relevant topics, including zero waste, the state of the recycling market, resiliency, adaptability and the future of LEED. As always, Greenbuild served as a good opportunity to interact with contacts from partner agencies and organizations, including Mike Zatz, manager of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® Commercial Buildings program.
