NZ20 Featured on USGBC-LA Blog

U.S. Green Building Council Los Angeles Chapter (USGBC-LA) Executive Director Ben Stapleton recently wrote a blog post about the organization’s involvement in the 2020 Net Zero Conference & Expo, which will be hosted virtually on September 15 + 16, 2020.

As part of the program, USGBC-LA will be showcasing our 2020 cohort of innovative startup companies from our Net Zero Accelerator, all of which are delivering solutions to help make net zero carbon, energy, water, and waste a reality in the built environment. What better evolution of the conference than for you to witness fast pitches 17-member companies that have been selected for their strong potential to be game changers in building technologies and materials, as well as green jobs creation, and with solutions ranging from reducing carbon across emissions-intensive industries to saving buildings from wildfires to providing access to clean power anytime and anywhere. One of these companies will receive an award for their innovation during the Trailblazer Awards ceremony at the end of the event, which you won’t want to miss.

A longtime event partner, this year USGBC-LA is heavily involved in several aspects of the program, including the Net Zero Accelerator Fast Pitches (a collection of short pitches from startups on the industry); our first virtual job fair to provide all those who’ve lost their job due to COVID an opportunity to advance their career; and the closing Happy Half Hour, where Stapleton will be joined by friends to reminisce about the year over cucumber mint margaritas.
