NEW APPROACHES TO CALIFORNIA’S SUSTAINABLE BUILT ENVIRONMENT

BREATHE LA’s September 6 Green Salon will address the issue of sustainable building initiatives in Los Angeles County. The salon will feature an expert panel discussion with robust Q&A to examine the system of LEED standards for buildings as a way to achieve high performance in key areas of human and environmental health.   Moreover, through practice, new concepts are emerging such as carbon neutral buildings, zero-energy development and re-generative design.

Regardless of the terms, a growing trend is apparent that encompasses a whole building approach, seeking to better integrate systems to improve overall functioning.  A great deal of experimentation is underway that will take us beyond current practices – in design, development and property management – and this Salon will give us a glimpse of some of those cutting-edge practices.

Panelists will address several questions including: How can we learn from exemplars to grow a new vibrant development sector in our region?   And, what role can be played by our energy providers that are committed to sustainable practices?

WHEN: Thursday, September 6 (9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.)

WHERE: The California Endowment, 1000 N. Alameda St., Los Angeles, 90012
