Today, green building can mean many different things, but not all green labels are legitimate factors to consider. Part of what will drive decisions in one direction or another is defining for yourself how wide you want to cast the green net. For example, limiting your evaluation strictly to energy ratings may be a little short sighted. If you widen your environmental evaluation to include factors such as the life expectancy of the product, where a product is manufactured and what the environmental impact of the manufacturing is, you’ll begin to paint a clearer picture.
We partner with energy-conscious consumers, builders and suppliers to make the best informed selection for each project.
