Summary

Earth Day Texas, Inc. invites you to take advantage of an Earth Day Texas Expedition.

Join Earth Day Texas on a behind-the-scenes field trip to explore innovation in action! The Center for Maximum Potential Building Systems, CMPBS, is a global center for sustainability located in Austin. The Center designs and tests innovative programs that integrate air, water, food, energy and material systems to build healthy and sustainable communities.

Pliny will explain how the firm created six national policies for LEED’s Green Building program.
