Sustainable development is the most vibrant and powerful force to impact the building design and construction field in more than a decade.
In this White Paper, the editors of Building Design & Construction offer a brief history of green building; present the results of a specially commissioned survey of our readers; and analyze the chief trends, issues, and published research, based on interviews with dozens of experts and participants in green building.
The White Paper concludes with an "Action Plan," a set of recommendations designed to encourage further dialogue about sustainable development.
