'Green building' focus of talk at Penn State Brandywine April 7

Penn State Brandywine will explore the positive economic and productivity impact of sustainable building during "Green Building," a discussion led by Gary Saulson, of PNC Financial Services Group, at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 7, in room 103 of the Tomezsko Classroom Building on campus. In the third and final lecture in Penn State Brandywine's spring speaker series, "Footpaths and Footprints: Discussions on Environmental Resource Sustainability," Saulson will explain why building green makes sense for corporate America.

Saulson, director of corporate real estate, is responsible for leading PNC's environmental strategy that has resulted in PNC having more buildings certified by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) than any other company in the world.

The Spring Speaker Series features business, policy and university leaders discussing the sustainable use of resources by consumers, commerce and government. From transportation, construction, shopping and recycling considerations, to business innovation and policy deliberations, the series seeks to educate students and the community about the importance and possibilities surrounding energy usage and resource sustainability.
