Greenbuild Boston will bring together an array of diverse industry leaders in the plenary sessions and in education programs on all aspects of green building and sustainability.

One of the special features of Greenbuild every year is the Master Series, in which you hear from many of these leaders—all of whom champion sustainability and green building in our world and inspire others to do the same.

In 2017, Greenbuild will feature three Master Series sessions:

Scot Horst

CEO of Arc Skoru Inc.
Wed., November 8 from 2–3 p.m.

In "Powering Performance: How Connecting Actions Is Accelerating Global Market Transformation," attendees will learn the role data is playing in market transformation and how Arc measures, monitors and benchmarks performance. In today’s world, data and technology help teams make informed decisions to drive continuous improvement in buildings, cities and communities. One year after the launch of Arc, CEO Scot Horst brings together market leaders from across commercial real estate, hospitality, health care, retail, schools and other sectors to tell their stories of how Arc is helping them use innovative strategies that improve performance and accelerate global market transformation.

Dr. John Warner

President, Chief Technology Officer, Board of Directors, Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry
Thurs., November 9 from 3–4 p.m.

In "Green Chemistry: Inventing Biomimicry Technologies in a Circular Economy," Warner introduces the principles of green chemistry and how it relates to our interdependent, cyclical natural systems. While there have been some examples of the circular economy deployed in industrial settings, the majority of industrial products and processes are disconnected and unsustainable. Creating most of these technological ecosystems will require applying green chemistry. Learn how organizations seeking a circular strategy benefit from integrating these principles with product design, manufacturing and supply chain management, and hear real-world commercialized examples from WBI that use them.

Stephanie Meeks

CEO, National Trust for Historic Preservation
Fri., November 10 from 9:30–10:30 a.m.

In "The Past and Future City: How Historic Preservation is Reviving America's Communities," Meeks provides a detailed look at the ways historic preservation can create thriving communities. Explore the impact of historic preservation in creating affordable housing and mitigating the displacement of existing communities. Learn about the inherent sustainability of older and historic buildings and the impact of preservation at scale on reducing carbon costs and addressing climate change. Meeks explains the critical importance of preservation for all our cities, the ways the field has evolved to embrace the challenges of the 21st century, and the innovative work being done in the preservation space now.
