Superintendent Jonathan Raymond and SCUSD’s Center for Green School Fellow Farah McDill attended the U.S. Green Building Council’s Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in San Francisco on November 14.

Launched in 2002, Greenbuild is the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. The event brings together industry leaders, experts and frontline professionals dedicated to sustainable building. The event also included many LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) workshops. LEED is a voluntary, consensus-based, market-driven program that provides third-party verification of green buildings.

SCUSD’s green renovation of The Met Sacramento High School is pending LEED certification.

From individual buildings and homes, to entire neighborhoods and communities, LEED is transforming the way built environments are designed, constructed and operated. Comprehensive and flexible, LEED addresses the entire lifecycle of a building.
