A number of cities have become very aggressive in promoting sustainability with commercial buildings.  Some of the more prominent leaders are New York, Chicago and San Francisco.  Denver is making a lot of strides to join this group.

Among the many activities being promoted by Denver and the local commercial real estate community is the upcoming “Green Building Summit and Exposition” being sponsored by the Colorado Real Estate Journal with local sustainability organizations, real estate firms and service companies.

Billed as “Colorado’s Largest Green Building Conference on the Year,” the meeting is being held on October 7th at the Inverness Hotel and Conference Center in Englewood, Co.  They are expecting over 300 participants.

It is great to see the commercial real estate industry come together to make green a priority in any city.

Also, Denver is, it ranked fourth in the nation for ENERGY STAR labeled buildings this year. That’s not per capita.  Denver, with 600,000 population, beat out New York and (number-five) Chicago.

Way to go Denver!
