Building green will help work towards minimizing carbon emissions

Encouraging green building practices and sustainability is essential for reducing and eventually eliminating carbon emissions contributing to climate change says the president of the Green Building Initiative. This comes as the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) releases its Fifth Assessment Report which emphasizes that urgent action is needed to help address global warming.

The report suggests that global warming is a real concern and is the result of emissions created by human activity.  The president of the Green Building Initiative, Jerry Yudelson,  says Americans can take steps to address global warming that are cost-effective and readily available through reducing energy use in buildings through green building measures.

Mr. Yudelson says that studies have shown receiving a green building assessment and certification can reduce energy use by 25% or more in newly constructed buildings and 16% or more in existing (older) building operations.

The Green Building Initiative is currently updating its new construction and existing building Green Globes rating systems. The new construction tool is following a national public consensus process approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Read more here.
