Building for the Future: What will be Green?

BCCR invites you to attend our January Breakfast and Learn with four industry leaders in a dynamic and interactive session as they share their diverse perspectives on the future of sustainability and the future of green building. 

What place will rating systems hold?  How can societal changes, including future changes in mobility, be incorporated now?  How will buildings built today fit into a circular economy 50 years from now? What does adaptation and resilience look like?

This session will be moderated by:
