Green building is booming, says Susan Dorn, general counsel of the U.S. Green Building Council. About a quarter of all new construction is green, she says, and 35,000 projects have registered for LEED status. The next challenge, Dorn says, is to take green building global; initial meetings have already been scheduled to develop a LEED-style standard for international construction projects. The Council is also at work to overhaul LEED indemnity clauses.
