Smart Skyscrapers Summit welcomes USGBC as premium supporting partner

Smart Skyscrapers Summit takes great pride in announcing US Green Building Council as a Premium Supporting Partner of this year’s edition of the summit. Produced by global conference organizers, Expotrade, the summit is set to take place on 16-17 May, 2016 at Sofitel Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa.

This association is especially relevant as the increase in green construction in GCC and other regions is driven by the increasing environmental awareness amongst all key stakeholders. U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Green Building Rating System is recognized as a widely accepted certification system for green buildings.

At the two-day summit, U.S. Green Building Council will present information on how LEED, currently in 155 countries and territories, is being used in skyscrapers to great benefit in terms of energy efficiency, water conservation and the creation of healthier indoor environments.

“Skyscrapers represent a bold, innovative architectural vision,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, COO, U.S. Green Building Council and President, GBCI. “Many of the world’s most prominent skyscrapers, powered by green building rating systems such as LEED, are built to last longer and reduce the impact on the environment. These structures also foster greater community connectivity and create economic concentration, benefitting the surrounding community through employment opportunities and investments in local infrastructure.”

Talking about the partnership, Mr. Brad Hariharan, Regional Director, Expotrade Middle East, said, “With buildings consuming approximately 40 per cent of the world’s energy, it has become imperative to ideate and derive solutions that contribute a significant amount of energy efficiency in the building sector and diminish the effect of climate change.

The summit focuses on innovative green building solutions and our partnership with U.S. Green Building Council establishes a shared commitment towards creating sustainable cities for the future. We take great pleasure in welcoming US Green Building Council as a Premium Supporting Partner of the 3rd Annual Smart Skyscrapers Summit and look forward to a long and meaningful association with them.”

Spread across two days, the 3rd Annual Smart Skyscrapers Summit brings together over 400 industry professionals from the architecture, construction, real estate and building industry to connect and hear industry leaders deliver insightful-rich sessions into this burgeoning market.
