Accounting For a Year of Progress in Sustainable Design

As we wrap up the end of the year, it is natural to look back on the progress made in environmental development. The CoStar Group, a company tracking commercial real estate information, has done a great job with a recent posting of the Top 10 Green Building News Stories of 2008 on their news column. The article provides a short description of the major stories affecting green construction over the last year that were published on their website. The article notes some pretty significant developments for the year, including: Green Building Trumps the Recession, The LEED Economy, Rise of the Green Lease, and Green Building on the Stump.

The list seems to offer some links to some great news stories for 2008.
