Green Building Rating Systems Discussion

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

Different Hues of Green Building

 

Ever wondered about the differences between LEED building and Green Globes? How much further does a project need to go beyond LEED to achieve living status? What about Green Globes and Energy Star Green Buildings? Join USGBC Idaho for a conversation on green buildings where we’ll convene a panel of experts to tackle these questions.

Our Green Building Rating Systems Panel is being held from noon-1 on Thursday, Nov 14th in the conference room at Idaho Power, 1221 W Idaho Street in Boise.

This is a free, public event for anyone interested in learning more about green building. Chicken and vegetarian coconut curry with waldorf salad is available for lunch and is $10 for USGBC Idaho members and $14 for non-members. Those purchasing lunch are requested to confirm their orders through our RSVP form.
