Philadelphia, PA - A comprehensive plan to make our nation's buildings more efficient could save enough energy by 2030 to power all of the nation's cars, homes and businesses for a year and a half, while saving Americans more than $500 billion, according to a new report by PennEnvironment. These findings offer a preview of what Pennsylvania could achieve by adopting green building policies, such as the statewide green building code proposed by Governor Rendell in February, and the many policies being pushed by state and local officials who joined PennEnvironment in releasing the report. "Green buildings are a triple win for Pennsylvania, saving us money on energy bills, cutting global warming pollution, and helping to secure our energy future," said Nathan Willcox, Energy & Clean Air Advocate for PennEnvironment. "We have the technologies to realize these benefits, and now we need the policies to put these solutions to work." Nearly half of America's energy-and 10 percent of the energy used in the world-goes towards powering our buildings, and much of that energy is wasted. And buildings account for 40 percent of total U.S. carbon dioxide emissions, a major contributor to global warming. But PennEnvironment's new report, Building a Better Future: Moving Toward Zero Pollution With Highly Efficient Homes and Businesses, found that by renovating old buildings, and ensuring new buildings use 50 percent less energy within ten years and are "zero energy" by 2030, we can cut U.S. global warming emissions at least 34 percent by 2050. The report also outlines policy steps that local, state and federal officials can take to promote green buildings and make these benefits a reality.

The Sustainable Buildings Series: Retrofits, hosted by the Global Strategic Management Institute (GSMI), scheduled for October 20-22, 2009 in San Francisco will provide a blueprint for navigating this sector and implementing sustainable building retrofits strategies.

The buzz is building over the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 31000 Risk Management - Principles and Guidelines on Implementation. After years of hashing things over, the final standard is expected soon (the ISO website shows a release date of June 30, 2009). The reason a lot of people are excited about ISO 31000 is that it brings together a global consensus on risk management condensed into about 20 pages of information. All forms of risks such as financial, security, safety, health, and environment are included. "Not pursuing an opportunity" is also a risk. According to the standard, risk is not always negative, but simply viewed as the "effect of uncertainty on achievement of objectives." Risk management process
