The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has announced that former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will give the opening keynote address at its 2013 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo. This year’s conference will take place November 20-22 in Philadelphia at the LEED Gold-certified Pennsylvania Convention Center. Registration opens today.
Clinton served as the 67th U.S. Secretary of State from 2009 until 2013, after nearly four decades in public service.
“USGBC is deeply honored that Secretary Hillary Clinton has accepted our invitation to speak at Greenbuild 2013,” says Rick Fedrizzi, president, CEO and founding chair of the USGBC. “She is a respected global leader whose body of work over the years has championed initiatives that are aligned with our movement — nation-building, social justice, economic equality and children’s health and well-being. While she was Senator for New York, she was a powerful voice for sustainability as an economic development driver. She joins a lengthy list of cutting-edge thought leaders who have inspired our movement from the Greenbuild plenary stage.”
