“In uncertain times, green building continues to show itself as a versatile solution to many of our challenges, both financial and environmental. As the landscape in which businesses must operate rapidly evolves, green building and the LEED rating systems continue to offer an environmentally responsible means of building and operating high-end, healthy, and efficient buildings, guarding against erratic energy prices and the impacts of environmental legislation and regulation.” – US Green Building Council
