The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), the United Nations Environment Programme’s Regional Office for North America (UNEP RONA) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) have announced a new initiative to highlight the important role of buildings and cities in the green economy. 

Scheduled to launch in Toronto at the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo on Oct. 4-6, the “Road to Rio+20” initiative will engage private sector leaders, civil society and local government officials in highlighting examples of the green economy in action, with a focus on energy efficiency in buildings and sustainable cities. Events will take place in locations across North America throughout the coming year.
