Green Building Research

Each month we publish a newsletter titled IAQ Website of the Month. The excerpt below was originally published in the April 2008 newsletter.

In honor of this week’s Earth Day celebrations, we’ll feature a website that lists resources for “greening” buildings. Our goal should be to design buildings that are healthy for the indoor occupants and the outdoor environment.

This month’s featured website is the Research and Publication page of the US Green Building Council’s website. This page provides links to PDF files and helpful websites that will help you better understand sustainability, energy efficiency and indoor air quality.

Skeptics often ask, “Why should we spend all the extra money to go green?”. This month’s featured site has a section called “Economic Analysis” with links to publications that tackle that very issue.
