3 chances to learn about EDGE at Greenbuild Boston

Sarah Buente

Greenbuild is the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. Join us in Boston from November 6 to 10 for two days of interactive workshops and three days of renowned speakers, industry-leading educational sessions, an interactive exhibit hall and valuable networking.

Featured at this year's Greenbuild is EDGE, a green building certification system focused on making buildings in emerging markets more resource-efficient. EDGE enables design teams and project owners to assess the most cost-effective ways to incorporate energy and water saving options into their buildings. An innovation of IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, EDGE comprises a web-based software application, a universal standard and a certification system.
