Green Buildings a Start, but can we think bigger?

By Nancy Henderson

Our current thinking that sustainability is accomplished by individual developers on a building-by-building basis is very limiting and does not offer the range of return on investment that we should be demanding.Private interests and public sector concerns do overlap and can be aligned through incentives, regulations, and innovative approaches like those discussed above. Public/private partnerships could be the key to creating the foundation for a sustainable future.
