GBIG Insight was launched, in large part, to offer an inclusive forum where leading voices can share their research, analysis, and commentary on critical issues in green building. Throughout the past year we heard from Green Building Council Australia on their incredible efforts to promote sustainability in Australia; we learned from 2030 District leaders about local efforts to advance energy and water efficiency in commercial buildings; we discussed the mounting evidence that sustainability can improve your bottom line; we lauded the emergence of green property bonds; and we learned about cool buildings in places as far away as Sydney, Tel Aviv, and China.
Assuming you didn’t manage to read everything we published this year, we decided to put together a wrap-up highlighting a few of our favorite posts from 2015. Enjoy.
