Michael-Owens-Sustainable-Summit (1).jpeg Michael Owens has been producing events on the built environment for more than 15 years. Now, he turns his focus to the upcoming Sustainable Facilities Summit, set to take place in Lake Tahoe, CA, from June 23 to 25, 2013. The event aims to go beyond the typical topics of LEED certification, green design, retrofitting and rebuilding to really encompass how buildings can champion efficiency. The Tahoe event is scheduled to bring the likes of major companies like Walmart and Microsoft together with green-minded city governments like San Francisco, Portland and Austin.
