Overheard At Greenbuild
”The American dream must be a green dream now,” said Newark, N.J.’s mayor Cory Booker. “We need to stop putting sustainability into leftright terms, which is the broken record of our politics.” “The environmental movement has been talking to itself a lot,” said Majora Carter. “It’s time to move outward.” “About 30% of new buildings have indoor air problems, which is about the same or more than in existing buildings.”—John Spengler, Ph.D., Member ASHRAE, at “Climate Change Hits Home: Impacts on Buildings & Health” “One myth is that we have to sacrifice for sustainability,” said David Kohler, president and COO of Kohler, Co. “It doesn’t have to be about compromise.”

Nearly 25,000 people attended the 2012 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo.

Greenbuild: ‘We Are Right’
11th Greenbuild Focuses On Growth, Transparency
SAN FRANCISCO—Comparing the emergence of the green building industry to social movements of the past, Rick Fedrizzi, president and CEO of the U.S. Green Building Council, declared to an audience of 6,000 that “We are right.” in his plenary speech here at the 11th edition of the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo held in November. “We’re right when we design, build, and operate our buildings so that they reduce energy, keep costs down, and conserve our planet’s resources,” said Fedrizzi. Fedrizzi also took on those who are slow to adopt to sustainability. “We’ll see your policy inertia, and raise you world-changing innovation and growth.” This growth is reflected in a new study released at Greenbuild by McGraw-Hill Construction, which says that 63% of firms have green work planned in new commercial projects. Client and market demand as well as lower operating costs are driving this trend. But meeting demand at a realistic cost isn’t always easy. In an educational session on the costs of green retrofits, speaker Rex Miller said, “You have a brown process, and you’re trying to create a green solution.” Green can be achieved by adopting a business case approach instead of a project approach, according to Miller. Changing the rules to solve existing problems was the theme of the expo, which attracted more than 900 exhibitors. This year the Expo included a Passive House Zone with highefficiency products such as a ductless, through wall high heat recovery ventilator from 475 High Performance Building Supply. Other Greenbuild announcements include: • A $3 million grant from Google to the USGBC to foster healthy building materials. • A newly launched Green Building Information Gateway (www.gbig.org) that provides a transparent view of green projects. The 2013 Greenbuild will be in Philadelphia on Nov. 20 to 22. Source: Report From Sarah Foster
