Global green building market booming

Comment

Excellent article, Ewen Rose! It’s great that the global green building market will boom till 2022 – what a decade ahead. When Lennox intimates we are moving past LEED and Energy Star to NET ZERO for businesses, residential will be next! It’s evidence that labeling something “green” doesn’t necessarily make it so – especially with checklist systems like LEED. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), on the other hand, takes a more holistic, “cradle to grave” approach to all elements of the building, and the other guiding star is “building performance” over time. Green Globes provides those metrics. Accountability and performance bring us closer to sustainability.
