One thought on “Environmental Executive Moves: USGBC, Calysta, Cool Planet, Minesto

  1. USGBC picks ‘in-house’ COO as new leader. Australian GBC has removed COO role in restructure to meet governance review. Time to turn to blue after USGBC 15 month gestation period at USGBC? GBC’s promote green values & ratings vs opaque building outcomes. Why the long USGBC goodbye?
    Australian PM gone in 6 hours today.
