Buildings Are Getting Greener; But Are They Getting Better?

The energy crisis we are facing, public perception of global warming, media coverage and better awareness
by building owners is fueling a “Green Building” explosion. Everywhere one looks today, there is some
mention of “going green”. So what exactly is “going green”? The answer to that question all depends on
who you ask. I also think asking the question, “are green buildings actually better” would elicit numerous
responses, and again it would depend on who you asked.
