Green Building Trends in Europe with Jerry Yudelson

This replay of Jerry Yudelson’s green building webinar provides an overview of the subject, as well as the ways that Europe is currently ahead of the United States.

Green Building Trends: Europe is the first definitive study of European green building design and construction. What can U.S. building professionals learn from their European counterparts? In his upcoming webinar, Yudelson will explain why Europe leads the world in green building practices, and how to adopt these cutting-edge techniques and ideas in American and Canadian cities. His presentation will include case studies drawn from a year of on-the-ground research in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Germany that show how European green buildings routinely use 50% to 90% less energy than comparable certified green projects in the U.S.

We’ve reached the point when we have not only the capacity to use sustainable techniques and materials for all building practices, but the responsibility to use them. In this webinar, Yudelson will details the lessons from Green Building Trends Europe and shine a light on how they can be implemented.
