Brendan Owens, LEED Fellow, P.E.

• The future of the green building industry is bright. Since the establishment of the LEED green building rating system in 2000, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has been at the forefront of green building. As the latest version of the rating system, LEED v4, continues to break ground in new and innovative ways, USGBC is also working to connect existing and emerging programs seeking to accelerate market transformation and broaden the scope of engagement. This session will explore market impact and uptake of LEED and connections to other leading edge programs to green the built environment.
