Delaware establishes advisory group on green building policyUS Green Building Council, July 2, 2013
The checkerboard floors of the Delaware State Senate were busy with activity well after midnight on June 30—yes, Sunday night—during the final hours of the 2013 legislative session. The Legislature considered a wide range of measures this spring, and it decided this past weekend to also establish a new committee to advise the state on green building policy.
With all the triple bottom line benefits that green buildings have to offer, there’s no wonder the state sees value in exploring ways to facilitate greater green building activity. Already, the First State boasts more than 300 green building activities and more than 9 million square feet of LEED- or ENERGY STAR-certified space. That’s a lot to be proud of.
