High-road contracting standards refer to a business standard of productivity and efficiency rooted in environmental sustainability, livable wages, and shared prosperity and inclusion. To conduct high-road contracting and increase supplier diversity, building owners and property managers must set clear goals and align employee incentives. The Building Innovation Hub recently released a suite of resources that lay out elements of best practices for building owners to design their own high-road contracting standards and sample tools to help implement them.
Join us on October 25 at 12pm to hear from our partners in this effort, Emerald Cities Collaborative and the NAACP’s CESBS Initiative, on why high-road contracting is the future of building performance procurement. Also hear from a building portfolio owner and a general contractor about the ways they’re implementing high-road contracting principles and how you can, too.
Confirmed speakers include:
- Denise Fairchild, Emerald Cities Collaborative
- Sharon Rheinhart, DPR Construction
Other speakers to be announced!
