On 2-3 March, ULI Europe took part in the URBAN FUTURE Global Conference, held in Graz, Austria. Over the course of two days, international and domestic experts exchanged views on best practices and shared project experiences in streams on mobility, living / city planning, communication and resources.
Elizabeth Rapoport, Content Director for Europe, presented to a large audience in a session on green buildings entitled “Going green: is it really that easy?” Elizabeth’s presentation focused on the achievements of ULI’s Greenprint Center, part of the ULI Center for Sustainability.
ULI Greenprint is a worldwide alliance of leading real estate owners and financial institutions committed to improving the environmental performance of buildings. Greenprint provides an environmental management platform for members to measure, track and benchmark property-level energy consumption, carbon emissions, water usage and waste diversion. Members commit to taking actions to reduce the carbon emissions from their portfolios 50 percent by 2030.
ULI Europe also took part in the Urban Future Expo, showcasing recently published research on density, technology and the innovation economy at the ULI stand. Visitors and conference participants were particularly interested in learning about ULI’s Advisory Services Panel for the cities of Frankfurt and Offenbach, ULI Germany’s Building Healthy Places programme, as well as opportunities to connect with ULI’s over 38,000 members worldwide.
