SEPTEMBER 30, 2015 BY
Last night’s Talking Green (in partnership with Historic Routt County) Creating Sustainable Communities by Investing in Older Buildings with Jim Lindberg, Senior Director of Preservation Green Lab (PGL) at the National Trust for Historic Preservation, highlighted extensive research on and comparisons between the practices of updating older historic buildings versus a new “green” building. Preservation Green Lab seeks to minimize carbon impacts from the built environment through direct emissions reductions from building retrofits and reuse, and to conserve character-rich and human-scale communities that attract people to more sustainable, urban living patterns.
