May 7 2009, Portland OR: Carbon Footprint of Neighborhoods Study to be Launched at Living Future

May 7 – BioRegional and green developer Codding Enterprises have been invited to launch a major new report in a plenary address at the sold-out Living Future conference – easily the most advanced green building gathering in North America. The study compares the total carbon footprint of households in various green building scenarios. The report finds that to reach “truly sustainable” levels, US households must achieve a 75% reduction in total carbon footprint. Households in a LEED-ND Platinum project achieve only an 18% reduction – indicating that green buildings and smart growth planning are an important step but clearly are not enough. To learn more about the study’s findings on bridging that gap, drop in on the conference Thursday May 7.
