Join USGBC's VP of Research Chris Pyke at VERGE San Francisco
As building investors, owners, and service providers are scrambling to create and use transparency, each one faces different drivers and obstacles. Transparency is often perceived to increase risk for owners and, in some cases, occupants. However, it lowers risks for investors and the public leading to a clear dynamic tension between stakeholders.
At VERGE San Francisco, USGBC Vice President of Research Chris Pyke will explore the role of transparency in real estate with GRESB Executive Director Nils Kok and AtSite Chairman and CEO Davor Kapelina.
VERGE San Francisco convenes world’s biggest companies, innovative start-ups and cities to focus on the technologies and systems that accelerate sustainability solutions across sectors in a climate-constrained world.
