Twitter co-founder "Biz" Stone and “Morning Joe” co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough will present the opening plenary address at the U.S. Green Building Council’s Greenbuild 2012, the world’s largest green building conference and expo.

 

“Sustainability is everywhere, and no longer is it an option for companies and individuals to ignore their footprints,” said Stone. “Collectively, we can make a profound social and environmental impact. I look forward to the ensuing discussion among the innovative crowd at Greenbuild.” Source: USGBC
