“USGBC’s deep knowledge of green building and sustainability practices and experience with third-party verification systems, along with Dow’s demonstrated technical expertise creates the perfect foundation for catalyzing energy improvements in buildings worldwide. We’re thrilled to be able to continue to partner with Dow to build on that foundation through our first ever Carbon Challenge, which will recognize building owners and managers that are making carbon savings an integral part of their projects.”
“As urbanization puts demand on the building industry, improving the planning and execution processes of construction and development becomes a vital piece of the sustainability puzzle. Across the built environment value chain, architects, builders, urban planners, developers and others are challenged at every step to create high-performing, resilient buildings and communities. With these partnerships, it is our goal to leverage one another’s relationships and distinctive expertise to take this challenge head on and help the industry utilize the most sustainable solutions available.”
The winners of the 2019 Carbon Challenge Award will be announced during Greenbuild China 2019, which will be held in W Shanghai the Bund on October 23-24, 2019. Your projects will be featured in a special session, highlighting the challenges and opportunities you faced while delivering high-performance buildings.
Additional recognition will be offered by Dow, sponsor and co-initiator of the Carbon Challenge Award. All the winners and selected top performers will be offered a unique opportunity to be part of the Official Carbon Partnership of Dow and the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which will quantify and showcase the actual Carbon impact of selected projects at both the design and operational phases.
