Weekly Poll (20)


The City of Portland, Oregon, recently announced the approval of recommendations to add Concrete Embodied Carbon Threshold requirements for city construction projects. Do you think these requirements should be adopted in other states?


How important is it to you to use green technology when it is an option?


The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory recently confirmed that the U.S. Green Building Council is piloting a new credit for the installation of cool exterior walls in new homes, schools and commercial buildings for the purpose of mitigating urban heat islands. Do you think the pilot credit will inspire more facility owners to integrate cool walls?


The U.S. Green Building Council reported last month that more than 130 LEED projects have engaged in its Safety First pilot credits in support of “healthy reopening plans in response to the pandemic.” Do you think the number of projects will continue to increase?

At the tail end of April, NYC passed a green roof bill, requiring all new commercial and residential buildings in the city to have 100% green roofs made up of plants, solar panels or small wind turbines—or a combination of all three. Do you think 100% coverage is an achievable goal?


Preliminary research released last month on China’s “air-purifying tower” has found that since launch, the tower has created more than 353 million cubic feet of clean air per day, reducing smog levels to moderate on otherwise severely polluted days. Do you think the greenhouse technology employed here will take off in other cities?


The Denver Green Roof Initiative that passed last month in Colorado not only requires new, large buildings to be constructed with green roofs but also requires buildings of a certain size to install green roofs when the current one is up for replacement. Do you think more cities should follow suit?
