The USGBC-LA Emerging Professionals Committee is hosting an introduction to green building and sustainability certifications. Right now, there are dozens of certifications, rating systems, and accreditations, and this can get confusing. This event will highlight benefits, uses, project case studies, and the differences between each certification. This event is designed for everyone, whether you want to pursue a green building certification on your next project OR you want to figure what accreditation to get next OR you just want to learn more about the field. At the event we will cover the following certifications:

• Living Building Challenge
• Fitwel
• Energy Star
• EcoDistricts

Following the certification overview will dive into a Q&A and group discussion.  2021 and Beyond… The Emerging Professionals Committee will be curating the remainder of our annual events around the topics and certifications that you find most interesting. Don’t miss out!
