Readers might be interested to hear that Auckland Council’s coming Unitary Plan will “punish you,” in the words of the Deputy Mayoress, if your building doesn’t get a tick from the Green Building Council.
They don’t seem to have noticed that "Green building" certification is a scam:
What [Green Building] designers deliver is what most [Green Building] building owners want—namely, green publicity, not energy savings.
Do they know it’s a scam? Or care?
