Buildings produce almost half of the carbon dioxide emitted in the US each year.  They consume 75% of the electricity generated.  The good news is they can do better - a lot better.  LEED certified buildings use 24%-50% less energy, produce 33%-39% less carbon dioxide, consume 40% less water, and recycle or reuse 50%-70% of their solid waste. Come and learn how.
