Net Positive Energy + Water is latest green certification standard

The advancement of sustainable construction has reached a new milestone with the development of Net Positive Energy+Water, a new green building certification standard that aims to improve net zero approaches to energy and water conservation. “We shouldn't have as our end point some point that doesn't do anything. We need to be regenerative and have a net positive [effect] on life,” said Jason McLennan, Living Building Challenge founder, and a Building Design+Construction “40 Under 40” honoree.
