Worldwide, there has been increasing focus on the carbon footprint of buildings and recognition that design professionals are positioned to reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere by creating high-performance structures. The building sector consumes nearly half of all energy produced in the United States, 75 percent of the electricity produced is used operating buildings, and, in 2010, the building sector was responsible for nearly half of U.S. carbon dioxide emissions.
