Message From the President  
Greenbuild 2011
2011 Greenbuild International Conference & Expo in Toronto, Ontario.

This year marked the 10-year anniversary of Leonardo Academy's Cleaner and Greener® Certification Program offsetting emissions for the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo. In fact, 100% of the carbon emissions were offset for this year's Greenbuild. (See our Greenbuild Virtual Booth for more information and photos.)
    Thinking back on the last decade a lot has happened for sustainable standards. In 2000 the first buildings were certified under LEED for New Construction and the development of LEED for Existing Buildings was just beginning. In just ten years, LEED has gone from being on the fringes to being mainstream best practice. 
    Over the last several months, two new Leonardo Academy standards were approved as American National Standards by the American National Standards Institute: standards for Sustainable Gaming Machines and Emissions Inventories, Offsets, and Reduction Credits. And the development of the Sustainable Agriculture and Environmental Declaration (LCIA) standards are underway. 
    We look forward to the benefits of these new standards becoming mainstream over the next 10 years.
