If you have not heard the news, the USGBC has launched an exciting new initiative called the Center for Green Schools. The goal for the center is to encourage education facilities for students of all ages to adopt green methodologies. Among the new crew leading the center are the Founding Sponsors from United Technologies. Company Vice President, Sandy Diehl, shown above with some of the Center for Green Schools crew, gave a Greenbuild opening speech about his long-standing relationship with the USGBC. United Technologies is a parent company for makers of energy-efficient HVAC systems, energy-harvesting elevators, and many other future-forward technologies.
