    Speaker: Bill Russell, Principal, Transitioning to Green
    Bill Russell is a global leader in advancing sustainability aligned strategies and management systems. He works with a variety of clients to assess and financially quantify opportunities and risks posed by current environmental, social, economic and sector specific trends.


    Evaluating whether Green Building is right for your project:
    Green Buildings are the new normal for real estate owners and tenants. Their superior value has been demonstrated. That said, there are still several barriers that are preventing or delaying their penetration into markets. Bill Russell, a Principal with the sustainability training and consulting company Transitioning to Green, LLC will provide insights into the latest research and methods for quantifying the financial costs and benefits of Green Buildings, the non-financial environmental and employee productivity benefits and what is being done to address and lower implementation barriers. Be prepared to share your own experiences and ideas.

    On Saturday, Sept. 27, 2014, the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council will host the third annual Green Apple Day of Service

    For one day, advocates from around the world, including students, teachers, parents and elected officials, as well as international green building councils, USGBC staff, chapters, member companies and more, will come together in support of healthy, sustainable schools by taking action in their communities.

    Projects ideas include: creating a raingarden; painting rainbarrels; conducting an energy audit; hosting a recycling drive; or holding a tour of a green school. 

    There will be more details to come on events sprouting up in New Jersey- but these events rely on you. This is a grassroots campaign, and you decide what will work for your school and your project.
