Francesca Galati – LEED for Cities, Greenbuild Boston
Francesca Galati, BEE’s General Manager for Europe and the Middle East, presented at the conference on LEED for Cities. Francesca worked with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), creators of the LEED green building rating system in the first city in Europe that registered for LEED for Cities program – Savona Italy.
LEED for Cities combines sustainability, social equity and human experience with technology and analytics and is based on LEED – the world’s most widely used program for green buildings and communities.
Francesca said, “LEED for Cities represents a unique opportunity to grow awareness about health, wellness, and sustainability at the urban scale, and Savona will become the case study for the European Region.”
