Philadelphia to Host 2012- Green Building Advocate Conference

In November 2012, about 30,000 green-building advocates will meet in Pennsylvania at a conference hosted by the Delaware Valley Green Building Council.  Sponsored by the U.S. Green Building Council, the event is to discuss progress along the energy efficient and green building plans around the world.

Citing a need for state and local building codes and policies to undergo a facelift with specifications requiring “green” alternatives such as building automation, these advocates have a goal to convert skeptics who have doubted that retrofitting buildings with green energy management plans and building energy efficiency is worth the investment.
Current goals for Philadelphia include pushing to have an impressive variety of sustainable construction to show come conference time in 2012.

On the first day of the conference, Janet Milkman will also have her first day on the job as the building council’s executive director.  A leader of the smart-growth advocacy group 10,000 Friends of Pennsylvania, Janet has most recently headed a program connecting children with nature, called Erthnxt.

The 2012 conference is set to be a forum for ideas, strategies and policies to set the foundation for the green economy for future generations; making the case for greener living.

Last Wednesday, supervisors of the Lower Makefield Township made a move toward adopting an ordinance. The ordinance would require new municipal construction and major renovations to be built to the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) silver standard. The group’s vote decided to advertise the ordinance proposals, which will then be subject to public comment before final voting and decisions.
