Greenbuild China, Human X Nature, the
flagship event for sustainability professionals


Greenbuild China, Human X Nature is the flagship event for sustainability professionals and is a celebration of the intersection of humanity and the built environment.

Greenbuild offers a forum for the green building community to unite, change lives, revolutionize business and address pressing issues, such as air quality, human health, energy use and global climate change.

The green building movement embraces all of humanity by making sustainable buildings and environments accessible to everyone, and in doing so, benefits the natural environment all around us. We are helping people understand their role in protecting and preserving the natural environment and leveraging the built environment to: enhance human health and wellbeing, ensure resiliency, mitigate climate change, enhance community and social equity, restore and protect our ecosystems, enhance building efficiency and performance, and promote sustainable design. The future of the human race is interlaced with the future of the planet, and the sustainable practices we celebrate and advance at Greenbuild remind us that our success as sustainability advocates, practitioners and professionals is more than a movement, it is a responsibility.
