I’m a big-time reader–anything good I can get my hands on. But, I’m picky. So I take time to read BusinessWeek (BW) every week, and I can’t remember the last time they DIDN’T mention green this or sustainable that. This week, BW named green building one of The Best Ideas of 2006 (slide show). Again, this doesn’t come as a surprise because BW has been on green for a while now; back in July, for example, they had an article about the Green Wonders of the World. Here’s a snippet from this week: "The Hearst Building has lots of company in this year’s green all-star category, including Adobe’s new Silicon Valley headquarters, Google’s installation of solar panels at its Mountain View headquarters, and the new Bank of America tower in New York. BofA’s glassy wonder, now emerging over Bryant Park, is expected to become the greenest office tower in the U.S., complete with a living green roof and sensors that know when to pump fresh air into stuffy meeting rooms. Healthier workers. Fantasy digs. A smaller contribution to global warming. Green is good." Yes, indeed. For the inquisitive, I’ve posted on Hearst and Adobe before.
