At USGBC, we often talk about the fact that you can’t manage what you can’t measure. There are many factors that can impact the performance of a building, and knowing your energy and water usage is the first step in spotting and addressing any issues as soon as they crop up. This is also why GBCI requires LEED projects to provide energy and water data on an ongoing basis.
Too often, landscapes, infrastructure and buildings are designed without regard to their harmful impact on our scarce resources, essential ecological systems and quality of life. Population growth and development are causing our communities to use more resources than ever before, which means more waste. We must think beyond the building to gain the benefits of healthy ecosystems.
