The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has announced former Vice President Al Gore as the opening keynote speaker for its annual Greenbuild International Conference & Expo, set for Nov. 11-13, Phoenix, AZ.
impressive career and bipartisan outreach have helped elevate global climate
change to the main street public consciousness,” said Rick Fedrizzi, president,
ceo and founding chair, U.S. Green Building Council. “The role buildings play
in our lives, our health, the economy and the global environment – including
being responsible for 39% of the carbon emitted in the United States – means
the built environment is a tremendous opportunity for us to make real change,
and Vice President Gore’s keynote address will be an inspiration to the
Greenbuild community to make 2010 yet another banner year for green building
innovation and growth.”
keynote address will kick off Greenbuild at the Opening Keynote &
Celebration, taking place November 11 at Chase Field, home of the Arizona
Diamondbacks, followed by a musical performance by nine-time Grammy winner
Sheryl Crow and an address from Fedrizzi.
