Last week, the Greenbuild Conference and Expo made history by hosting the inaugural Greenbuild India in partnership with ABEC Exhibitions and Conferences. Hundreds of leaders, experts and frontline professionals dedicated to sustainable building convened in Mumbai for inspiring keynotes, robust sessions, invaluable networking and an interactive expo hall.
The Greenbuild India Conference and Expo provides an exciting opportunity for college students in India. When you volunteer with us, you can attend education sessions on air quality, human health, energy use, global climate change and green building in India; gain hands-on volunteering experience; and network with green building industry leaders, professionals and companies.
Greenbuild India will be held November 2–5, 2017, at the Bombay Convention and Exhibition Center (NESCO).
Eight organizations to be honored at inaugural Greenbuild India Conference and Exposition
The building sector in India is rapidly emerging as a global center for green building construction.
Gender equality is key to sustainable development, so is no surprise that the subject is included in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Still, the relationship between environmental sustainability and women's empowerment has often been overlooked in practice—particularly in the construction industry.
An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is an internationally accepted, verified and published report focusing on the ways in which a product affects the environment throughout its life cycle.
An EPD discloses the life cycle story of a product’s environmental impacts—from material extraction through production, shipping, consumption and disposal. EPDs do not act as product ratings; rather, they are informational resources that help architects, designers, specifiers and other purchasers better understand a product’s sustainable qualities and environmental impacts.
