No, not the Beach Boys, but Sheryl Crow will perform at the international conference and expo's opening event at Chase Field in Phoenix, home to Major League Baseball's Arizona Diamondbacks. Crow is a dedicated activist when it comes to environmental issues, and has pushed for the adoption of efficient technologies like CFLs and biofuels, and in the past has successfully rallied people from all walks of life — the media, grassroots, Fortune 500 companies, the government — to build support for environmental protection. Looks like she walks the walk, not just talks the talk. The USGBC couldn't have made a better choice to lead off the show.
Greenbuild will be held from Nov. 11-13 in Phoenix.
