Market forces have made green building a premium to be desired and paid for.  But this didn’t happen by magic.  It happened primarily because one man saw the need to make this his life's work. He is David Gottfried.

David Gottfried is the founder of the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and the CEO of Regenerative Ventures. His latest work is Explosion Green: One Man's Journey To Green The World's Largest Industry.
