Green Building Policy in a Changing Economic Environment

Posted on | November 18, 2009 | No Comments

The title of this post is taken from a report recently released by the American Institute of Architects (AIA), which I found through my daily Department of Energy update.   The report can be found on this AIA’s Local Leaders in Sustainability Web page, which also has some great links to case studies done over the past few years on cities and communities all across the country.  I found this quote on that page, and I thought it was worth repeating:

The ultimate goal of the AIA, and of all proponents of green building, is to see a day where “building green” no longer exists, and green design is integrated into all buildings.

Hear hear, AIA.   Thanks for writing that.  Now if we could only get more architects to live it, we’d be in better shape…
