"There was also an indication that the benefits of green buildings may extend beyond the workday: the employees in working green buildings also reported 30% FEWER SYMPTOMS OF 'SICK BUILDING SYNDROME'– a condition typically marked by headaches and respiratory problems, attributed to unhealthy or stressful factors in an office working environment, such as poor ventilation – and had a 6% HIGHER SLEEP QUALITY compared with those working in high-performing buildings that were not green-certified." ~ Luke Nicholls, edie.net

"One of the most dominant themes we heard in our employee engagement efforts was a need to focus on sustainability. While the issue has been at the forefront of design discussions for more than a decade, our people pushed us to truly think about how we could elevate sustainability in our design. This urging from our employees is the driving reason we were able to achieve LEED Platinum ® certification from the U.S. Green Building Council ® .

The certification is wonderful, but what proved more inspiring were the numerous ideas our people brought forth about ways to connect the new headquarters to public transportation, integrate “green” roofs, reduce energy and celebrate access to natural light." - Dennis Kerrigan, Zurich North America’s chief legal officer

“We’re going through an affordable housing crisis right now and there is that drumbeat to just build housing as fast as possible and to make it as cheap as possible, but you have to resist that. We want to build housing as fast as possible, but in a way that’s responsible and will work in the long term.” - Zachary Klonoski
Policy Advisor at Portland Mayor's Office

We are excited to see more green roofs in San Francisco!
"The new legislation will allow owners and developers the option of building 30% of roof space as green roofs, or a combination of green roofs and solar panels. The proposed ordinance builds on legislation requiring 15% roof space to be set aside for solar panels adopted earlier in 2016, and allows owners and developers to implement two square feet of green roofs instead of one square foot of solar panels if they wish."
