Sustainability 101: Green Building

Date: Thursday, March 25
Time: 6-7pm
Location: The Green Roundtable / NEXUS Resource Center*
(Downtown Crossing) (view map)

Did you know that commercial buildings represented 18% of primary energy consumption in the U.S. and used 36% of the nation’s electricity in 2006? In addition to energy savings, do you know what other factors are evaluated by LEED, the internationally recognized green building certification system?

As the first event in our “Sustainability 101” series, we invite you to join NIB and Boston’s Emerging Green Builders to learn the basics of green building — no prior knowledge necessary! NEXUS closes at 7pm, but we’ll be adjourning to a nearby establishment TBD afterward to chat more.

RSVP by March 18 to Andy Blanco (

*NEXUS is on the 7th Floor of 38 Chauncy St.
