Tom Hicks, USGBC, Building Performace Initiative, LEED, Green Building, USGBC Building Performance Initiative USGBC BPI


In case you missed it – we’re doing a LIVE INTERVIEW TODAY [1] with Tom Hicks of the USGBC [2], to discuss a brand new USGBC initiative to test and analyze the performance of ‘green buildings’ [3]. This is an extremely exciting BRAND NEW initiative from the USGBC [2], and Tom is leading the charge on establishing performance accountability for green buildings [3]. For those of you who have ever thought to themselves: “LEED is all fine and good, but what happens to LEED-rated buildings after they are built and get their certification?” – make sure you join us in this Inhabitat Green Chat [4] to find out more about this great new Building Performance Initiative [3] from the USBGC.

If you want to watch the interview and participate in the chat, SIGN UP NOW to join us at 2:00pm EDT/11:00am PDT [1] today.


On top of driving a three-fold increase in LEED [5] activity in just a few short years, Tom has taken international LEED [5] participation from a base of 25 countries to more than 115 in just two years!  Our editor-in-chief Jill Fehrenbacher [6] will be speaking with Tom about his latest strategic venture with the USGBC [2]: the Building Performance Initiative.  Designed to bring ongoing accountability to LEED-certified [7] structures, this initiative ensures buildings meet or exceed their performance goals on a wide range of energy and environmental considerations.  We can’t wait to see you there!
