November 14th @ Building Clean 2019 Summit

How Buying Local and Healthy Strengthens Your Community

16 West Adams Street
Chicago, IL 60603


Building Clean 2019 is a summit that looks at the power of procurement in the built environment to bring better health, jobs, and equity to communities.

Our goal is to demonstrate innovative practices across sectors that could be adapted by other stakeholders. Sustainable procurement is about much more than recycled paper. It reaches into every aspect of buildings, which is what all businesses, government, and communities have in common.
