The Cascadia Green Building Council would like to invite you to our June signal issues panel workshop celebrating “Women Reshaping the World” co-hosted by the Workshops and Emerging Professionals Committees.

The interactive session will address building a business case for developing buildings that achieve much of the living building challenge criteria while still attracting tenants and users at a market‐rate.

While advancements in building technology, codes and policies have aided Net Zero Energy and Water goals, finding Red List compliant products, is relatively new and very arduous undertaking. The Bullitt Center project team will share how the Red List was addressed through collaboration, knowledge exchange between teams at the same time as mitigating issues such as risk, and liability.
