Video - 25 Years of Sustainability (Michael Geller)



In this video Michael Geller, President, Architect AIBC, FCIP, RPP, The Geller Group, discusses what we have learned about sustainability in the last 25 years. During this time we have moved from sustainability as a concept to sustainability as the prevailing standard for buildings, infrastructure and neighborhoods.

There are now four primary sustainable building validation systems in Canada; LEED, BuiltGreen, BOMA Best and the Living Building Challenge, what do these systems mean, what have they told us and why do owners and developers want these validation systems attached to their buildings and neighborhoods? Over this period how well have buildings performed compared to the design? What green attributes appeal to tenants and investors? How do sustainable features, help the management of assets and make the building productive? Does the cost of greening a building pay off? What do the last 25 years tell us about the next 25?
