Thanks to the third-party verification system, more people have come to understand that sustainable buildings aren’t just good for the planet. Those who build, own, and occupy them reap personal benefits. Let’s face it, we humans like our comfort and we love to save money, so once we hear people gushing over pristine indoor air, lower energy bills, and all-around better living, we all start to want in.
