MUMBAI, October 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Award-winning green building conference and expo returns to Mumbai, November 15-16  

Today, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), creators of the  LEED  green building program, announced Rick Fedrizzi, Chairman and CEO of the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) and Elora Hardy, founder and creative director at Ibuku, as keynote speakers for Greenbuild India (https://greenbuild.usgbc.org/india). Greenbuild is presented by USGBC and in partnership with the ABEC Exhibitions & Conferences Pvt. Ltd. (ABEC). It is the world's largest green building conference experience and a celebration of the intersection of humanity and the built environment.

"Greenbuild is an opportunity for leaders and practitioners across India to come together and determine what's next for the green building movement," said  Mahesh Ramanujam, president and CEO, USGBC and Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI). "It's an honor to have Rick and Elora join us for this year's monumental event. Their work serves as an inspiration for what we can achieve when we come together to create a more sustainable world that has the power to improve lives and the environment."

Rick Fedrizzi is an architect of the green building movement and the founding chair of USGBC and former CEO of USGBC and GBCI. During his tenure LEED grew to become the world's most widely used green building program. Now as chairman and CEO of IWBI he is working to advance human health through better buildings and communities. Fedrizzi has previously served as the environmental marketing officer at UTC's Carrier Corporation and sits on numerous boards and advisory councils including View, Inc., Global Green and Enterprise Community Partners Health Advisory Council.

Elora Hardy was raised in Bali where she developed a passion for business that respects the land, environment and people. At one time she was designing prints for fashion icon Donna Karan, but moved back to Bali where she founded Ibuku, an innovative design firm exploring the use of bamboo to build homes, hotels, schools and event spaces. She leads a local team of innovative designers, engineers and architects who go outside the conventions of architecture to connect people with nature and sustainable design.

In addition to hearing from powerful industry leaders, Greenbuild is the go-to place for the green building industry to convene and cultivate new relationships. Attendees will have access to robust education sessions, invaluable networking opportunities and an interactive expo hall.
