After 15 years since introduction of LEED 2.0, nearly 35,000 US commercial buildings and about 250,000 homes have been certified. However, there are 5.5 million such buildings and nearly 133 million residences in the US. In addition, new project registrations have leveled off to zero growth (steady state) since peak years in 2011-2013. Clearly, current programs won’t be effective in reaching low-carbon goals for buildings, a key component of climate-change mitigation strategies. Reinventing Green Building combines an insider’s critique of the current state of affairs with a potent vision for the future.
