USGBC VA: The Shifting Landscape of VA Green Building Policies in 2022


As we enter a new year, the landscape for sustainability and green building policy in Virginia is shifting. 2022 will bring a new administration to the Virginia governor’s office, while activity at the federal level, including the recent passage of the Infrastructure Bill and COVID-19 relief funds, open new opportunities for supporting the development of healthy, sustainable, resilient communities. Join USGBC Virginia for an engaging, forward-looking discussion with a panel of experts on federal and state green building policies and their effects on Virginia municipalities and institutions. Our panelists will provide an overview of recent and anticipated changes and opportunities, and will offer insight into how we can move forward together to create better buildings that bring a better quality of life to all in Virginia.

This session is pending for GBCI and AIA credit.
