Apply by February 16 to have your green site or building featured on a Greenbuild tour.

From November 14–16, 2018, Chicago will host the annual Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, the world’s premier green building event. Tours of exemplary green buildings and other sustainable sites will be held November 12,16 and 17.

To highlight the Chicago area's leadership in sustainability, the 2018 Greenbuild Host Committee is soliciting applications for sustainable projects and efforts in the Chicago region to become a part of a full- or half-day tour.

Any sustainable site within a 30-minute drive from downtown or McCormick Place may apply to be on the official schedule of tours. Tour sites are not required to be a building or to have a LEED certification to apply, but they must be able to accommodate 40–50 attendees at one time (these can be broken up into smaller groups for touring).
