Browner to Deliver Greenbuild Keynote Address

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

Carol Browner

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) announced that Obama administration environmental adviser Carol M. Browner will deliver the keynote address at the closing plenary session of USGBC’s annual Greenbuild International Conference & Expo, scheduled for Nov.11-13, 2009, in Phoenix, AZ.

Rick Fedrizzi, president and CEO of USGBC, said, “Closing Greenbuild 2009 with Carol Browner is the perfect way to launch the USGBC and the green-building movement into a new decade that will see people and policy come together to create a stronger, cleaner, more cost-effective green economy.”

Browner was appointed by President Obama as assistant to the president for energy and climate change, and serves as the head of the White House Office of Energy and Climate Change. Browner brings considerable environmental-policy experience to the administration’s vision to achieve increased energy independence and combat climate change.

Browner previously served in President Bill Clinton’s cabinet as EPA administrator from 1993 to 2001. During her tenure, the longest in EPA history, she set tough air- and water-pollution standards while championing common-sense, cost-effective mechanisms for protecting the environment, the USGBC said in announcing her choice as keynote speaker.

The Arizona Diamondbacks’ Chase Field will host the opening of Greenbuild 2009, which will include remarks from Vice President Al Gore and a performance by nine-time Grammy winner Sheryl Crow. Greenbuild 2009 will feature more than 100 educational sessions, LEED and education provider workshops, off-site educational sessions, a two-day residential summit, the World Green Building Council International Congress, and tours of green-building sites throughout Arizona. Exhibitors at more than 1,800 booths will showcase technologies and products targeting green design, construction, and operations.
