Green building saves money and creates jobs. It's also the simplest way for communities to lower dependency on fossil fuels and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
In this series, a multi-disciplinary team from the Tyee Solutions Society reports on how the next generation of green buildings are paying off in the form of financial and energy savings, improved living, and new jobs in a strengthened economy. Contributors include environmental reporter Colleen Kimmett, education reporter Katie Hyslop, and sustainability reporter Monte Paulsen among others.
