PEST PREVENTION TAC: INVITATION - Official launch of San Francisco's Pest Prevention By Design Guidelines

The release of the Pest Prevention by Design guidelines is a landmark in the evolution of both Green Building standards and safer pest management practices.
You are invited to our official launch event & presentation
The Pest Prevention By Design Guidelines are a peer-reviewed compilation of building design features that can reduce pests and pesticide use for the life of a building. The Department of Environment led a national committee of experts from academia, government, and the architecture, engineering, and pest management industries to develop the guidelines over the past two years.  

You are invited to the official launch and presentation on the new Guidelines. This event will be a unique gathering of leaders from the architecture, construction, and green building fields.  Stay at the leading edge of the green building movement - join us on Jan. 24!
