Greenbuild is the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. It is the go-to place for the industry to convene and shape the future of the green building and sustainability movement.
This year, SITES and sustainable landscape design will be featured throughout the conference. Join us in Boston from November 8 to 10 for renowned speakers, engaging sessions, an interactive exhibit hall and valuable networking.
Visit the GBCI booth and Certification Work Zone on the expo floor. Subject matter experts will be on hand throughout the conference for technical help. Get all of your questions about the SITES rating system and SITES AP credential answered, or get help with registering a project.
Also, you can learn more about the synergies between SITES and LEED and how any LEED v4 project can now automatically earn all of the points in the Sustainable SITES credit category in LEED when they achieve SITES v2 Gold certification or higher.
SITES workshops and sessions in Boston
- Exploring the SITES v2 Rating System for Sustainable Land Design and Development (Mon., November 6): Explore the SITES v2 Rating System and make the case for pursuing SITES v2 certification using real-world project examples.
- High-Performing Sites and the Soils Beneath Them (Wed., November 8): Review the complexity of soil ecosystems as well as share experiences of designing landscapes—particularly in urban or degraded contexts. This session will frame the importance of soil in green infrastructure, urban landscapes, resiliency and the SITES rating system.

- Integrating LEED ND and SITES into Your Design Approach (Fri., November 10): This session will share a design framework based on the LEED v4 for Neighborhood Development and SITES v2 rating systems that can become a working tool for your design approach to better integrated solutions, more sustainable design and higher-performing outcomes.
