Greenbuild and Shanghai Tower to jointly host second Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in China

Shanghai Tower is perfect venue to host the October 23-24 expo because the world's second-highest building adopted green building practices early.

Greenbuild, the world's largest conference and expo dedicated to green buildings, and Shanghai Tower, the second-highest building in the world, will jointly host the second Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in China in October.

China's tallest tower is a perfect venue to host this year's Greenbuild China expo on October 23-24, said Mahesh Ramanujam, president and chief executive officer of the US Green Building Council, today because it is an early adopter of green building practices and a LEED Platinum high-rise.

The council's LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the world's most widely used green building rating measurement.

Outside of the US, the Chinese mainland ranks No.1 on the council's list of top countries and regions with 1,240 LEED certified projects spanning over 48 million square meters.
