ABSTRACT
The author claims that government legislation is no longer needed when it comes to addressing climate change and nature preservation. He argues that the primary objectives of minimizing carbon emissions and energy conservation became part of the people's everyday lives. He notes that the desirability of constructing buildings that qualify for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification was accepted by architects, commercial real estate developers and property owners.
