Greenbuild Virtual Panel | Busting Myths about LEED’s SS Category & Climate Adaptation


On November 12th, TBG’s Director of Sustainability, Mikel Wilkins was part of a Greenbuild Virtual panel on Busting Myths about LEED’s SS Category & Climate Adaptation.

From Commercial Property Executive…

Transforming the ways buildings and communities are designed, built and operated has been at the forefront of the U.S. Green Building Council’s work for nearly three decades, along with resilience—a concept that, in this industry, relies heavily on the ability to prepare for, absorb, recover from and adapt to adverse events.

But, in order to be able to adapt, we first need to understand the tools and mechanisms we can use to build a safer and more sustainable future, while overcoming a variety of obstacles related to climate change. With that purpose in mind, a group of sustainability experts gathered on the last day of Greenbuild virtual to debunk the top myths and misconceptions about the Sustainable Sites category of the current version of LEED and climate adaptation.
