USGBC - Illinois Chapter at BuildEx!

Join Chris Happ, a sustainability expert from Goby as he walks you through their market leading sustainability program ‘review.recruit.remain.’  The session speaker will explore the three stages including operational efficiency, market recognition, and strategic value. Through real life examples the presentation will explore how to maximize the value of your unique asset and market through a sustainability lens. Participants will learn the most cost-effective strategies to achieve operational efficiency; how to market their achievements as sustainable and green; and how to minimize future risk through strategic planning to reduce exposure to future green legislation.

The audience will be challenged to think about the future and best ways to mitigate risk through sustainability action today.  Each participant will walk out of the presentation with a thorough understanding of where their asset sits on the sustainability curve and at least 3 actionable items they can start on right away to move along the path to sustainability.  We will focus on examples from a diverse cross section of buildings to show sustainability is not just about LEED or Energy Star including Class A, B,C, industrial, parking garages, shopping malls, warehouses, and manufacturing.

Presenter:  Chris Happ, CEO, Goby LLC
