The Healthy Materials Summit on October 26th was an awesome event! We couldn't have put everything together without the help of a hosting committee, the volunteers, and especially our sponsors. An extra big thank you goes to the Sustainable Performance Institute for really helping to make the Summit happen.
SPI, lead by our friend Barbra Batshalom, aims to advocate for more green buildings by working with designers and consulting them on how they can construct more sustainable buildings. They fight for LEED, Net-Zero, Living Buildings, and more, to change the root of an organization to want more than just a building, but a sustainable design and a healthier company culture with it.
To do this, they provide design assessments for the building owner's team to see where they're currently at. From there, they educate the team on best practices and to understand the green building industry better. From there, they consult the team on the next steps to take, certify them on what they're learned and how they have changed, and then give a report card on how the group has progressed.
In January, we're hosting a morning educational session with SPI! Join us on the 19th for our Project Mapping Workshop talk. Register here.
