There's been a lot of talk in the architecture industry about green building and sustainability for the past several years, but how much of that is just talk, and how much of it translates into action? That's the question one blogger/industry watchdog is asking in a recent post. The new standard on high-performance green buildings, which will be formally unveiled Monday, has to be seen as a step in the right direction, but can and should more be done?
What do you think? Should design professionals be more aggressive in reducing carbon footprints of the buildings they create? Are things already moving in that direction at your firm?
