Meet the Champions: Achieving the Triple Bottom Line in Green Building
One of the hallmarks of striving for sustainability in the building sector is achieving the triple bottom line: sustainable practices that benefit the planet, people, and profit. As the design and building industry struggles to survive in the current economy, achieving the triple bottom line has often been elusive. Join us for an inspiring day of dialogue with those who have successfully championed for a more sustainable built environment that benefits society, the environment, and the economy. Learn why economic profit and equitable access to healthier, more efficient buildings and communities are not mutually exclusive, and come away with an understanding of the models and strategies that have led to success.
This year's event is quite different and inspiring, and should be of interest to all architecture, urban studies and planning professionals. We're focusing on green building-related business models that help create community and financial stability. We'll be hearing from "Champions of the Triple Bottom Line" who will offer an innovative perspective on how the industry and cities can meet sustainability goals in all senses of the word.
