McGraw-Hill Construction (MHC), part of The McGraw-Hill Companies and the leading provider of information and intelligence to the construction industry, today announced it is proud to be the official media partner of the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC), giving each organization the ability to extend market reach with green intelligence.
"McGraw-Hill Construction is committed to increasing knowledge and awareness of sustainable design and construction," said Harvey Bernstein, vice president, Industry Analytics, Alliances and Strategic Initiatives. "McGraw-Hill Construction, as the industry's leading provider of green information and intelligence in the U.S., and WorldGBC, whose members include national green building councils throughout the globe, will now have a greater ability to convey critical intelligence and market-sizing data internationally and domestically."
The partnership will facilitate greater global sharing of information about green building and encourage increased dialogue and learning.
"We are so pleased that McGraw-Hill Construction has agreed to partner with us in its continuing support of our organization," said Andrew Bowerbank, executive director of WorldGBC. "MHC provides resources and information aligned with our mission to accelerate the construction industry's use of environmentally and socially responsible building practices through our members -- national green building councils."
As a union of national councils, WorldGBC (https://www.worldgbc.org/) represents over 50 percent of all global construction activity and reaches over 10,000 companies and organizations worldwide.
McGraw-Hill Construction's multinational customers will gain intelligence about the U.S. green building market, as well as how global factors may be impacting it and the subsequent impact on their businesses.
The results of the global green trends data collection and research will be launched at the SB08 Conference in Australia this fall. Results will also be presented at the following venues later in the year: The Shanghai Green Building Conference, McGraw-Hill Construction's 2009 Construction Outlook in Washington, DC in October, and the U.S. Green Building Council's GreenBuild in Boston, MA in November.
