Seize one of these opportunities to learn more about LEED for Cities and LEED for Communities.

Greenbuild is the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. Join the Arc team in Boston for two days of interactive workshops and three days of renowned speakers, industry-leading educational sessions, an extensive exhibit hall and valuable networking.

Featured at this year's Greenbuild are LEED for Cities and LEED for Communities, certifications focused on sustainability and quality of life in communities around the world. This LEED certification benchmarks places of all sizes—from neighborhoods or districts to towns, counties and cities—using a performance score based on data from a global set of communities.

LEED for Cities and Communities are available exclusively on the Arc platform, and are most applicable to existing places. LEED and Arc enable local governments and private entities to gauge progress, identify areas for improvement and communicate their achievements.
