A symposium to accelerate progress on innovative, sustainable building practices in Garfield, Pitkin and Eagle counties
The buildings sector is responsible for 40% of all energy used in the U.S. In Garfield, Pitkin and Eagle counties, we’ve seen great progress in constructing and retrofitting energy efficient and high performing buildings. To reach adopted state, local and regional clean energy targets, however, we need to do so much more.
Building(s) for a Sustainable Future is an opportunity to work together, expand on success to date, and spur greater progress moving forward. The symposium will bring together architects, builders, designers, real estate professionals, lenders, community leaders, and representatives of local and state agencies from our three-county region and beyond.
Keynote: Edward Mazria
Internationally recognized architect
Principles, tools and actions for designing low-carbon and carbon neutral structures, communities and cities worldwide.
