About William Reid

Mr. Reid is an internationally recognized proponent and practitioner in sustainability and principal in three firms, the Integrative Design Collaborative, Regenesis, Inc., and Delving Deeper – green building consulting, living system design, and education organizations.  He has participated in over 300 presentations and workshops relating to Sustainable, Regenerative and Whole System Design and consulted on over two hundred green design commissions and dozens of LEED projects. He is a guest lecturer at Universities from Harvard and MIT to the University of British Columbia.

"Bill Reed can definitely be described as one of the early adopters of green building design. He has not only played an important role on the development of the very first version of LEED, but also was a part of the leadership that built the foundation for the USGBC as an organization,” says Tim Cole, Immediate Past Chair of the Board of Director of the USGBC.

This esteemed speaker and sustainability expert is expected to draw green building and environmental enthusiasts from throughout North Carolina and beyond to this important annual event.
