Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, the largest global event serving green building and sustainability professionals, produced by Informa and presented by the U.S. Green Building Council, announced The Home Depot–the world’s largest home improvement retailer, operating more than 2,200 retail stores with headquarters in Atlanta–is the title sponsor of the upcoming 2019 event. Greenbuild takes place at the Georgia World Conference Center on November 19-22, 2019. Registration is now open.
“The Home Depot team has been an exemplary Greenbuild Expo partner for the past decade, and we’re thrilled to expand that partnership in Atlanta as the company celebrates its 40th anniversary this year,” said Sherida Sessa, Greenbuild brand director. “The company’s commitment to this year’s event is a testament to their leadership in sustainable practices around the country. Programs like Eco Options, their role in the Green Chemistry and Commerce Council, designation as a global leader by the Carbon Disclosure Project: this is much more than a sponsorship. It’s bringing new stakeholders to the table, new education to the marketplace and tremendous new value to the Greenbuild experience.”
In addition to broad support of Greenbuild’s mission to deliver leading-edge solutions to professionals improving the resilience, sustainability, and quality of life in buildings, cities and communities, The Home Depot will jointly present networking forums and education, such as supplier-oriented training in the Materials Applied Learning Area focused on manufacturing for and selling to green industry retailers and buyers. “As a large-scale retail leader, we believe it’s imperative to seek out the most sustainable options for our customers, which is why we take great pride in partnering with Greenbuild Expo,” said Ron Jarvis, The Home Depot’s vice president of sustainability and environmental innovation. “Greenbuild provides an optimal platform to witness environmental innovation in products such as those in our Eco Options portfolio.”
