|High-Performance Building Week
June 13-19, 2010 - Congressional leaders that represent the High-Performance Building Congressional Caucus Coalition took time out of their busy schedules to meet with industry leaders for High-Performance Building Week.
The High-Performance Buildings Caucus of the United States
Congress was formed to heighten awareness and inform policymakers about the major impact buildings have on our health, safety and welfare and the opportunities to design, construct and operate high-performance buildings that reflect our concern for these impacts.
During High-Performance Building Week members of the United States Congress met with industry leaders to discuss the value of high-performance buildings. Fundamental to these concerns include protecting life and property, developing novel building technologies, facilitating and enhancing United States economic competitiveness, increasing energy efficiency in the built-environment, assuring buildings have minimal climate change impacts and are able to respond to changes in the environment, and supporting the development of private sector standards, codes and guidelines that address these concerns.
