Poll: Why Does Green Building Matter?
GBA wants to know
Everyone has their own reason for wanting to build green. A couple of years ago as a fun little experiment I asked people at Building Science Summer Camp what the most important aspect of Green Building was. I expected a pretty straight across the board "Energy Efficiency" answer. I wasn't surprised to get health, global warming, durability, and forest conservation as answers, but I was surprised that I got them so frequently.
That was before the Great Recession and the Big Housing Bust. Now, in hindsight, with energy prices skyrocketing, McMansions absolutely on the way out, and the housing industry looking for the next answer, what do YOU think is the most important aspect of Green building? This week's poll allows multiple answers because we at GBAGreenBuildingAdvisor.com understand that green building is not a one-dimensional topic. Please only vote for your top two topics.
