       Please forward this invitation to anyone you think may be interested!

       

      US Green Building Council- Greater Houston Chapter

       is proud to present the Founder of the USGBC:

       

      David Gottfried

      FounderU.S. and World Green Building Councils

      President – WorldBuild

      Author – Greed to Green: the transformation of an industry and a life

       

       

       

      Green = Value

       

      David will share insight, stories and experience from his personal “greening” journey on these life changing trends of sustainability -- as he progressed from a real estate developer in the booming 1980’s to founder of the U.S. and World Green Building Councils, and a pioneering green management consultant. He will also be available to sign his new book Greed to Green.

       

      Global transformational change in how we conduct business and make products is undergoing explosive growth. This societal cultural change is fueled by understanding and embracing the principles of sustainability and life-cycle value. The core of value includes efficient use of precious resources, environmental restoration and protecting our health. The results are tremendous: increased profitability for our businesses, personal lives and the planet.

       

      The building industry is leading the charge towards sustainability through the creation of green buildings. The catalyst of this leadership is the nation’s fastest growing industry coalition, the U.S. and World Green Building Councils. Now with 6,000 organizational members in ten countries, the green building council network has defined green building with its building rating systems and integrated organizational approach. USGBC now has 12,000 LEED Accredited Professionals and has trained 25,000 professionals from all sectors of the building industry.
