''USGBC is incredibly honored to be part of Mayor Daley's legacy as a world leader in demonstrating how a nurturing and sustainable city can be the highest service to a community,'' said Roger Platt, senior vice president of global policy & law, USGBC. ''This award is in recognition of the mayor's visionary and planet-changing leadership that has created the amazing legacy of a green city. We are looking forward to bringing our Greenbuild conference back to one of the world‚s most sustainable cities.''

Chicago is also a leading green building city in the U.S. As one of the first cities to adopt LEED for public buildings and home to more LEED-certified green buildings than any other, Chicago is truly committed to leadership as a ''next-generation'' city.

Mayor Daley has dedicated his time to making Chicago one of the most environmentally-friendly cities in the nation. His belief is that Chicago's future is directly linked with efforts to be a national leader in protecting and enhancing the nation's natural resources.

USGBC's Greenbuild Conference & Expo is a platform for the need for more sustainable cities, cities that create opportunity, drive jobs, save money for hardworking residents and power the green economy.
