Getting to Zero Illinois Summit

October 6 | 1 – 5 PM | 333 N. Green St.
Learn the latest in net zero buildings.

Join us for a half-day summit on net zero buildings. We are bringing together local leaders — owners, developers, operators and design teams — that are already working to make net zero buildings a reality. Participants will learn about the drivers for net zero buildings in Illinois, best practices for successful projects, and discuss opportunities to scale net zero building demand and adoption.

The Summit welcomes policymakers, designers, building owners, systems manufacturers, and commercial real estate professionals to share best practices and collaborate on opportunities to scale zero energy and zero carbon projects in the region.

Tickets open now!

The inaugural Getting to Zero Illinois Summit precedes Limelight on October 6. Spend the afternoon engaging in net zero topics followed by an evening reception networking and celebrating leaders in the building industry.
