About Greenbuild 2017

Greenbuild is Coming to Boston!

Let's get ready for the biggest networking event in green building worldwide: right here in Beantown!

Help us organize to make sure Greenbuild 2017 is the best ever

This is going to be great!

If you are interested in volunteering with one of our 7 working groups (sub-committees of the Host Committee at large), please provide us some information through this form. We can then connect you to the right member of the team. Working groups are already meeting (as of January, 2016), and are seeking helpers like you to build out our capacity to achieve on multiple fronts.


Our Request for Proposals for the Greenbuild Boston Legacy Project is now open! Proposals are due March 6, 2017. Read more here.


Again - here's the form for interested volunteers to help out with the various committees.


The Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, launched in 2002, is the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. Greenbuild features several days of inspiring speakers, industry showcases, specialty workshops, tours of the host city’s green buildings and invaluable networking opportunities. The event has been hosted in major cities across the U.S. and Canada, including Chicago, San Francisco, Toronto, Atlanta. and Philadelphia.

Boston hosted Greenbuild 2008, which brought in 28,224 registered guests, 807 exhibitors, and people from 85 different countries. In November 2017, Greenbuild is coming to Boston for the second time and USGBC MA Chapter is serving as the Host Chapter.

This time, Greenbuild is expected to bring tens of thousands of visitors and $32 million in business to the Boston area. This is a tremendous opportunity for us to showcase local projects and expertise while bringing attention to issues of particular importance to our region. While Greenbuild is a meeting of national and international experts in the field during one week in November 2017, our goal is to leverage the event to engage the broader local community in discussions and activities that raise awareness around sustainability and the built environment throughout the year leading up to the event.
