Superheroes of Sustainability
Grid has partnered once again with the Delaware Valley Green Building Council (DVGBC) to bring you Greenprint, an insert focused on green building. This year is extra special, and not only because we focus on the epic efforts of our area's Superheroes of Sustainability. This month, DVGBC and Philadelphia will be hosting Greenbuild, the U.S. Green Building Council's annual conference and expo, welcoming 30,000 of the world's leading green builders and shining a well-deserved spotlight on our efforts to become the greenest city in America.
