The NC Triangle Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council is pleased to
announce the 4th Annual GreenNC Tradeshow. This one day event featuring
68 exhibitors from across North Carolina will offer anyone in the
commercial building industry an excellent opportunity to gather
information about sustainable products and practices in NC, learn about
recent industry advances, and network with others interested in greening
commercial buildings. Sustainable building, also known as green building
or high performance building, strives to reduce the natural resources
used in the construction and operation of a building. This includes
energy efficiency measures, thoughtful design, use of healthy building
materials, water use conservation, and much much more. New this year is
a Residential Pavilion featuring green home products and service
providers. The Green NC Tradeshow website: http://greennctradeshow.com

Chapter of the USGBC. Mrs. Stankus started the presentations with an
