Keynote speaker lineup

Opening plenary

Welcome remarks: Marina Robles García

Marina Robles García, Ph.D., is the sitting Secretary of the Environment for the government of Mexico City. Robles García’s expertise in environmental education and programs in Mexico City is a natural fit with Greenbuild Mexico, enhancing our shared values of collaboration and inclusion.

Keynote speaker: Arnoldo Matus Kramer

In 2018, Kramer served as the first Chief Resilience Officer for Mexico City. His contributions to Latin American policy are vitally important to Greenbuild Mexico and our diverse community of sustainability professionals.

Keynote speaker: Mahesh Ramanujam

As President and CEO of USGBC and GBCI, Mahesh Ramanujam believes that sustainable living is not just about the physical building and rebuilding of our communities, but ultimately about our willingness to reimagine the way we treat each other. He envisions a world where construction is as much about compassion as it is about the convenience and efficiency of the structures themselves.

Behind every strategy, he emphasizes our universal responsibility to prioritize health and wellness, to make a commitment to the longevity of our planet, and to create a better quality of life for ourselves and future generations. Join us at Greenbuild Mexico to hear about USGBC and GBCI’s strategy to support this mission within the Latin American region and beyond.
