Philadelphia looks ahead to 2013 green conference

An article on Philly.com reveals that Philadelphia will have plenty of environmentally friendly projects to show off for GreenBuild when it comes to town in 2013. 

GreenBuild is the annual conference of the U.S. Green Building Council, and it will enter its 12th year in 2013. The event will take place Nov. 20 to 22. 

In the Delaware Valley Green Building Council area -- of which Philadelphia is a big part -- 152 commercial projects adhere to the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standard, and an additional 347 are under LEED consideration, according to the article. Moreover, several hundred houses are certified green projects.

In 2011, GreenBuild was held in Toronto Oct. 4 to 7. In 2012, the event is slated for San Francisco Nov. 14 to 16.
