Why Build Green
More than ever, green building is increasingly recognized as not just a fad, but as a vital component for a sustainable, healthier future. In city after city, state after state, communities are legislating changes in building requirements to create healthier, more livable surroundings. Whether looking to stem the ill effects of increased urban temperatures, decrease storm water overflows, shrink carbon footprints, or reduce the inordinate amount of waste historically produced by the building industry, green building is becoming the rule, rather than the exception.
Green Building Standards
While there are many standards by which to measure green building, the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) has created the comprehensive Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program to guide individuals, organizations, and developers in building better communities. More information can be found at www.usgbc.org.
