Sustainability is more than solar panels and green roofs. Join us as we highlight a range of green building and sustainability initiatives taking place all across Chicago.
Exciting sustainability initiatives are being incorporated into our built environment in newly constructed buildings, retrofits of existing structures and more green and resilient infrastructure across Chicago. This presentation will take you to Uptown, Pullman and back downtown as we visit projects and explore new strategies for alternative energy generation, stormwater reuse and energy-efficient design.
