Greenbuild Conference Recap

Posted By Adriana Vargas, National Fenestration Rating Council, Tuesday, November 26, 2019

NFRC participated in the 2019 Greenbuild International Conference in Atlanta last week. Senior Director Tom Herron and Manager Jeremy Browning met with exhibitors in the green building industry to promote the benefits of NFRC membership. They also connected with several window, door and skylight manufacturers to discuss the importance of NFRC’s fair, accurate and credible ratings for their products.

Organized by the U.S. Green Building Council, Greenbuild brings together companies and organizations focused on sustainability in the built environment. They have sessions and products on the exhibit show floor that highlight the latest trends and innovations in green building. They also released a sustainability report.  The international event also featured keynotes from a prominent civil rights advocate, a teen climate change activist and former President Barack Obama.

Headlining the opening session of the conference, President Obama spoke about the importance of sustainability for the future. He was interviewed by U.S. Green Building Council president Mahesh Ramanujam on the main stage and the two discussed the link between climate change and global economic inequality and the importance of leadership in shaping a sustainable agenda.
