Greenbuild International Conference and Expo is the face to face experience for sustainability in the built environment. It’s for professionals in architecture, construction, engineering, planning, and interior design who depend on thoughtful and ethical solutions which promote wellness and resiliency in construction and urban development.

Sustainability is the foundation of Greenbuild. Greenbuild is the only event genuinely dedicated to sustainability in the built environment, from the sessions we present to the products on the show floor to the way the event is produced. By participating with Greenbuild, you can return to the field armed with the education and discoveries that will empower your decisions, influence your actions, and inspire your dialogue—prompting you to share sustainability with others.

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:
1. Enhance human health and wellbeing
2. Ensure resiliency
3. Mitigate climate change
4. Enhance community and social equity
5. Restore and protect our ecosystems
6. Enhance building efficiency and performance
7. 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.
