“By bringing Greenbuild back to Mexico City we’re continuing to build on the important conversations and connections that were made at last year’s inaugural conference,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, president & CEO, USGBC and Green Business Certification Inc.

Last year at its inaugural event, Greenbuild Mexico highlighted the importance of this type of conference in the Latin American region. “Mexico is a leader in many subjects and green building isn´t the exception. This event, helps us to continue the conversations around this important issue, to generate progress, produce results and show them to the market,” said Alejandra Cabrera, SUMe´s CEO.
