Carl Seville and Martin Holladay will speak at the Greeenprints conference in Atlanta
The 16th annual Greenprints conference will be held on March 13-14, 2013 at the Georgia Tech Research Institute in Atlanta.
Sponsored by the Southface Energy Institute, the educational conference is aimed at "sutainability professionals." This year's speakers will include Rob Watson, Bill Reed, Chris Nelson, and John Tooley — as well as two speakers familiar to GBAGreenBuildingAdvisor.com readers: Carl Seville and Martin Holladay.
Carl Seville will participate in a panel discussion on the topic of "Certification Alphabet Soup: How do you choose which program to use?"
New home construction is not a climate change solution
The topic of Martin Holladay's presentation is "We Can't Build Our Way Out of the Climate Mess."
Here's the thumbnail version: “New green homes may be resource-efficient and energy-efficient, but those who trumpet new single-family homes as part of the solution to our climate crisis are engaged in greenwashingDissemination of misleading or false information designed to make an organization or product appear more environmentally friendly than it actually is.. What we actually need is a coherent national energy policy, steep new carbon taxes, and a massive program focused on weatherizing existing buildings.”
The cost to attend the full two-day conference is $299. Click here for more information on the Greenprints conference.
