2009 was my first full year blogging at Green Building Law Update. It was a difficult year for the construction industry, but the green building movement continued to grow.

I recently went back and reviewed the Green Building Law Update stories from 2009. Below are some of my favorite quotes from my favorite posts. If you have a moment, go back and check out some of these posts, as we will continue discussing these topics well into 2010.

  • "’Green’ was the buzz word in 2008. In 2009, Green Building Law Update predicts that green buzz words will become more nuanced and the focus will be on ‘energy efficiency,’ ‘retrofits,’ and ‘existing buildings.’"  Prediction: It’s All About the Retrofit


  • "A security instrument guaranteeing LEED certification is the unicorn of the green building industry."  The Green Building Unicorn
