With the development community increasingly buying into the environmental and business benefits of sustainable development, the next challenge is to get that message to other community leaders. Jacob Halcomb, a senior project manager at SSRCx Sustainable Solutions Group, is doing his part.
Halcomb is the liaison between the advocacy and outreach committee of the United Nations Environment Programme, which is working to spread the word of a global sustainability metric developed by its Sustainable Buildings & Climate Initiative.
“SBCI identified the need for a common language and definition for sustainable buildings,” he said. “Now, the committee is working to educate and raise awareness among global leaders about the important role of sustainable buildings in addressing climate change.”
