BWBR will provide examples from their on-going sustainability journey to demonstrate how evolving ideas in sustainability can be institutionalized. This journey includes the use of various tools including LEED Certification, AIA’s 2030 Commitment, and the WELL Building Standard. BWBR’s green practices have encompassed areas from the overall company mission, the operation of their building, and to the health and wellness of their employees.
