Sarah Alexander, vice president, certification, GBCI, updated the audience on the latest progress from USGBC and LEED in the global market and in China. China is now the largest market for LEED outside the United States. Based on the latest research, there are over 1,000 LEED-certified projects in mainland China.
China has an opportunity to drive sustainability at a global scale. The launch of Greenbuild China will help to accelerate the market transformation and China’s 13th five-year plan by providing the platform for professionals around Asia to exchange advanced concepts, products and technology related to green building.
Registration will open in June. Learn more about Greenbuild China, and watch our video:
