We need to encourage more Sustainable Projects in town in order to replace all of the old non-sustainable ones!

 

Whenever you hear the word “sustainability” used these days in an urban/city context it always means the above. Never forget that. And Sharon Springer uses this term all the time, whether she knows what’s she’s saying or not.

She’s such an habitual joiner and natural bureaucratic type that she probably doesn’t. It’s whatever’s in the air.

At one time the word actually meant something, but it’s been long co-opted. In most contexts it no longer signifies the ecological, just the commercial. It’s now a PR excuse for, “Let’s build this building!”

And what does it really indicate in a project anyway? That if you get hungry you can reach out and pull off one of the roof tiles to munch on? The HVAC is so good that you don’t have to ever open the windows, and can’t?

    With the right leadership team the ceiling is high. We need sound financial stewardship in tandem with visionary decision-makers to affect sustainable change for all stake holders. Just throw in “value-added” somewhere and you get the point, right?!!
