The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated what had already been a growing interest in health and wellness in building design, operations, and tenant workspaces. However, evaluating the information and options for healthier, safer buildings can be a daunting task. A panel of wellness experts and industry practitioners will discuss health and wellness trends, resources, technologies, tenant expectations, costs, certifications, and more. Learn how CRE is embracing the health and wellness revolution and hear recommendations for evaluating and incorporating health and wellness strategies for your buildings, your tenants, and your companies.

 

Discussion

  • What are the priority areas for health and wellness for you, your firm, your buildings, and your tenants?
  • What changes are tenants expecting in building operations and workplaces? How can building owners and managers help tenants optimize their spaces?
  • What recommendations/upgrades/changes are short-term? Long term?
  • How are owners and managers evaluating the many new technologies and products that have been developed to achieve a healthier and safer workplace? Which are fads and which are real? How do you evaluate cost, practicality, and effectiveness?
  • How important is health and wellness certification, and what are the options? Is there a need for third-party validation and labeling?
  • How will the current public health crisis revolutionize healthy building design over the coming years?
  • What are the best resources for CRE health and wellness trends? How do you stay up to date on trends and share best practices?

Why Attend

There’s no other event that brings together this unique set of individuals–government agencies, contractors, the private sector, architects, scientists and more–to improve the built environment. The conference will cover three hot topics in the built environment over three days with expert-led sessions.  Earn AIA-approved CES/HSW credits for conference attendance. Topics include:

  • Resilience – NIBS and the American Institute of Architects define resiliency as the ability to prepare and plan for, absorb, recover from, and more successfully adapt to adverse events. Between the pandemic and a growing number of catastrophic natural disasters, the built environment is at the forefront. Disasters are expensive, but most destruction can be prevented with cost-effective mitigation and advanced planning. New and existing practices must be developed or changed through research, advocacy, and education. A special focus will be placed on ensuring the resilience of the nation’s building stock, covering topics in the built environment relating to resilience due to climate change, natural hazard risks, and sustainability efforts.
  • Technology – New and advanced technologies rapidly are developed and deployed across the building industry, with major potential shifts in how the industry conducts day-to-day business. In addition to research and development into new technologies, the industry must be prepared for how these technologies will be adopted and utilized. NIBS is working to prepare the industry for new opportunities, as well as promote advanced, efficient, and safe structures. Building Innovation 2021 will showcase these advanced technologies and practices and highlight how the industry can best prepare for their adoption and deployment.
  • Workforce – The building industry faces many workforce challenges, from skills gaps to labor shortages. Today’s building workforce requires unprecedented technological, social, cultural, political, and economic savvy — all at a time when fewer individuals are entering the trades industry. Through various projects and its councils and committees, NIBS is working to address head-on these challenges. Activities in this space include showcasing career opportunities in the building industry; supporting better credentials and reducing uncertainty in the credentialing space; and, supporting continuing education and retraining opportunities for trades workers. Building Innovation 2021 will highlight this critical challenge for the industry, as well as opportunities for advancing the building workforce to meet 21st century needs.

 

About National Institute of Building Sciences

NIBS is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-governmental organization that supports advances in building science and technology. They were established by the U.S. Congress in the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, Public Law 93-383. Congress recognized the need for an organization to serve as an interface between government and the private sector – one that serves as a resource to those who plan, design, procure, construct, use, operate, maintain, renovate, and retire physical facilities.

Greenbuild Conference: Effective Cleaning or Hygiene Theater?

Greenbuild Conference: Effective Cleaning or Hygiene Theater?

Protecting Indoor Air Quality Amid the Pandemic

 

Program

The unprecedented focus on the safety of indoor spaces in the pandemic is normalizing hazardous cleaning practices that diminish the health benefits of green buildings. Over-emphasizing toxic cleaning chemicals can create significant health risks for building occupants, including – ironically – serious respiratory disease. How can building managers ensure effective pandemic protocols without creating a new set of health risks? Can third-party certifications add a meaningful measure of health protection? And how can managers leverage the increased attention on indoor air quality to effect progress toward sustainability goals?

 

This panel will take a deep dive into important considerations around pandemic-era cleaning, including health and environmental impacts, protecting vulnerable populations, promoting equity for frontline workers, and other emerging issues.

 

Experts from Corporate Sustainability Strategies, BMS Building Maintenance Services and Green Seal will provide insight into how industry leaders are meeting this challenge and provide actionable guidance for guarding against the spread of COVID-19 while protecting indoor air quality and sustainability goals.

 

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the health impacts of exposure to disinfecting chemicals and identify safer disinfection products and techniques to support effective and responsible building re-entry
  • Understand the basics of implementing the LEED Safety First Pilot credits
  • Understand how a Green Cleaning program enhances a hygiene-focused cleaning program and how to effectively communicate this to building occupants and stakeholders
  • Understand the real consequences of product over-exposure on custodial teams and other front-line workers so that their health and wellbeing can be addressed as a priority

 

Panel

  • Doug Gatlin, MPP, LEED AP, CEO, Green Seal
  • Brenna Walraven, MBA, BOMI-HP, BOMA Fellow, RPA, CPM, President and CEO, Corporate Sustainability Strategies
  • Emily Gove, LEED AP O+M, TRUE Advisor, Corporate Director of Sustainability and Training, BMS Building Maintenance Service
  • Taryn Tuss, MS, Vice President of Marketing and Communications, Green Seal

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Celebrates 30 Years of Climate Partnerships

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Celebrates 30 Years of Climate Partnerships

Dear Partners:

 

2021 marks a milestone celebration.

 

It was 30 years ago that an innovative idea took hold with the advent of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Climate Partnership Programs. These voluntary programs serve to broaden and diversify the EPA’s climate approach—working hand-in-hand with private sector organizations and others to achieve more than would be possible through federal regulations alone.

 

As an ENERGY STAR supporter, Corporate Sustainability Strategies (CSS) invites you to join the celebration and to help spread the word about the cumulative impacts of the EPA’s Climate Partnership Programs.

 

JOIN EPA’S 30TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

 

Impact At-a-Glance

  • More than 6 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions have been prevented from entering our atmosphere
  • American consumers and businesses have saved more than $500 billion.
  • These programs drove reductions equivalent to 8% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in 2019 alone.

 

Market Share and Impact on Commercial Real Estate

  • Thousands of organizations, including 40% of Fortune 500 and 33 industrial sectors, partner with EPA to help advance energy efficiency.
  • More than 270,000 commercial buildings (representing more than 25% of all commercial floor space in the U.S.) actively benchmarking energy use in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager to measure, track, and improve their energy performance.
  • Compared to typical buildings, ENERGY STAR certified buildings drive investment in energy efficiency.
    • Average Sale Price = up to 31% more
    • Average Rental Rate = up to 16% more

 

At CSS, we know the business case for sustainability, and we believe in doing well by doing good.

 

It’s important to share how businesses, organizations, and communities are impacting climate change. We appreciate your dedication and continued partnership to strengthen our economies while improving lives and our planet.

 

Sincerely,

 

Brenna Walraven, BOMA Fellow, BOMI-HP®, CPM®, RPA®
