This is a good read on green building. I am interested in learning more about it and welcome views from people - especially those who have experience in it.
Ray Tonjes, Chair of the NAHB of the Green Building Subcommittee, made this statement,
"Voluntary, market-driven green building standards are preferable to mandates, which can reduce the incentive and the market pressure to adapt and to change," said Tonjes. "NAHB members have proven that a voluntary, region-specific, flexible program can be both truly green and also allow for innovation."
