Like any non-profit organization, membership is the lifeblood of ISSP. Not because dues sustain us financially (they do), but because the experiences and needs of those we serve give us purpose.
Each year, our members push us to do more and we strive to meet those demands, whenever possible, because our members are inspiring. By day, they’re working on the frontlines of the sustainability transformation in diverse industries across the globe. And in their spare time, many participate in or even run our local chapters and regional learning networks. They’re determined to make an impact.
To say thanks, now through December 31, 2018, we’ll be running a year-end membership drive with a few exciting offerings. Learn more!
Specialize in Retrofitting Existing Buildings
Traditionally, green building certifications have focused on new buildings. And why not? These green building programs help shape the more visible, shinier, and sexier side of real estate.
Increasingly, however, the sustainability community is recognizing there are many more buildings that exist now than will be built and this existing building market segment is woefully underserved by green building certifications and roadmaps for improvement. Further, these lower performing assets are not addressed in other certifications and yet, for carbon and resource efficiency, small changes can yield far more improvement than tweaks to higher performing assets.
BREEAM, the world's first green rating system for such buildings, was developed by the Building Research Establishment (BRE).
ISSP credential holders will earn 0.5 CEUs for attending this webinar; registration is free for ISSP members and $25 for non-members. Learn more about retrofitting and register now!
