Mahesh Ramanujam is proving that building a more sustainable world is no longer a dream, but a global evolution. As president and CEO of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and Green Business Certification, Inc. (GBCI), he leads a community of 13 million people that’s growing every day.
A graduate from India’s Annamalai University with a degree in Computer Engineering, Ramanujam couples a strong background in technology and innovation with his goal of building healthier communities and democratizing sustainable living.
Ramanujam serves on numerous boards and advisory committees, including Bank of America’s National Community Advisory Council and the Board of Directors of GRESB, a private organization wholly owned by GBCI and that is the leading sustainability standard for global real estate portfolios and infrastructure assets.
Before becoming President and CEO of USGBC, Ramanujam served as both the organization’s COO and CIO. Prior to joining GBCI in 2009, he was COO of Emergys Corp., and for more than a decade, he successfully led various business transformation programs at IBM and Lenovo.
Transformative thought programs, partnerships, and initiatives continue to be at the heart of Ramanujam’s work today. He leads hundreds of employees and thousands of volunteers who work tirelessly as the backbone of the green building movement. He believes that sustainable living is not just about the physical building and rebuilding of our communities, but ultimately about our willingness to reimagine the way we treat each other. He envisions a world where construction is as much about compassion as it is about the convenience and efficiency of the structures themselves. And most importantly, behind every strategy, he emphasizes our universal responsibility to prioritize health and wellness, to make a commitment to the longevity of our planet, and to create a better quality of life for ourselves and future generations.
Come meet Mahesh Ramanujam from the US Green Building Council and hear about his visions for the future of green building.
Our host, Coastal Enterprises Inc, has one of the few LEED rated facilities in Maine.

For More Information :
The Maine Climate Council is charged with developing a plan to meet state greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets that are now in law, including a gross 45% greenhouse gas emissions reduction below 1990 levels by 2030 and at least 80% by 2050.
Starting with an overview of energy use by sector, our panel of experts will explore challenges for meeting these targets. What combination of strategies could work, and what business opportunities might emerge? How have other states proceeded? What is the baseline and how will progress be tracked? Do Maine’s forests offer a unique advantage, or has that been over-stated? As the Climate Council begins work on a blueprint for action, this panel will look at the scope of their undertaking.

Sponsored by: Maine Municipal Association and the Maine GIS User Group
BIGGER AND BETTER! The Maine Municipal Association in 2020 expands its annual technology event to become the Municipal Technology & New Energy Conference. We will continue to honor technology topics such as internet access and broadband, cyber security, GIS tools and website development. MMA will also provide a new energy “track” of workshops looking at solar power, LED lighting conversion, electric fleet vehicles – and more.
Keynote Address: The State of Broadband in Maine
Nick Battista, Senior Policy Officer, Island Institute and ConnectME Authority Board Member
The issue remains a high priority: The quality of broadband Internet service remains pivotal throughout the state, as Maine competes in the global economic development marketplace. So, how’s it going? How are Mainers being served in cities like Augusta, Bangor and Portland, but also in rural areas and on island communities? What new idea and projects are out there to serve as educational examples?
