WASHINGTON – The U.S. Green Building Council will co-sponsor a nationwide Webcast on climate change, called Face It, hosted by Architecture 2030, a research organization focused on the role of buildings in global climate change. The webcast will focus on Architecture 2030’s approach to stop global warming and will unveil two new student competitions.

“Buildings account for 39% of all CO2 emissions in the U.S., and building green is an immediate and measurable solution to mitigating climate change,” said Michelle Moore, USGBC senior vice president of policy & public affairs. “Educating the construction leaders of tomorrow is a core part of USGBC’s mission, and out support of Architecture 2030 in this essential webcast is a critical part of that.”

The webcast will be broadcast live at www.architecture2030.org at 9:00 a.m. EST on January 30. Video will be available later for download on the site.

In addition to sponsoring the Face It webcast, USGBC will be hosting a series of online carbon reduction educational seminars aimed at assisting building industry professionals and business and organizational leaders who want to reduce the carbon footprints of their building projects or organizations.
