A unique learning opportunity in Poland

Join GBCI Europe for the first LEED for Cities and Communities Pro Training in Poland! Delivered to you by USGBC Vice President of Communities, Vatsal Bhat, the training is created by the U.S. Green Building Council and comes with 8 CE hours and badges, Rating System Pro and Certification Process Pro. The event is made possible with the support of Colliers Poland and Property Forum, and in cooperation with the Polish Green Building Council.

LEED for Cities and Communities helps projects credibly track progress toward overall sustainability objectives and allows for comparison with others around the world. LEED for Cities and Communities helps local leaders and the private sector to: 

  • Benchmark performance against national and global standards 
  • Demonstrate a commitment to net-zero energy, water and waste as well as carbon neutrality • Operationalize outcomes-oriented policies and strategies centred on sustainability, resilience and social equity 
  • Develop a culture of data-driven decision-making, transparency and leadership 
  • Improve the standard of living and quality of life in cities and communities 

Globally recognized certification process pros for LEED for Cities and Communities are needed to meet USBGC’s goal of transforming all cities and communities to be planned and performing at the highest levels of sustainability and equity. Such experts are also expected to move these communities to net-zero energy, water, waste or carbon neutrality and beyond. Project teams need to understand various data and documentation needs of every credit and prerequisite. Additionally, they need to understand best practices and nuances of the certification process and follow it to offer a seamless certification process for their clients. Learn from USGBC staff who helped develop this rating system and are now helping more than 250 LEED for Cities and Communities projects certify. With this course and badges, you’re on your way to impacting and improving the planning and performance of your city or community.
