Clinton Promoting 'Climate-Positive' Communities

Last week in Seoul, Bill Clinton announced a new collaboration between the Clinton Climate Initiative and the U.S. Green Building Council to go beyond the single LEED building and create new green development models for whole communities.

"It's one thing to put up a LEED-certified building, but quite another to develop an entire urban community with enough energy-efficient bells and whistles that its on-site emissions are actually less than zero.

That's the ambitious objective of the new Climate Positive Development Program, a joint venture between the Clinton Climate Initiative and the U.S. Green Building Council, unveiled last week at the C-40 Cities Climate Leader Group summit in Seoul, South Korea.

The program will help support 16 large-scale urban re-development projects on six continents, including the London Development Agency's $2.4 billion Elephant & Castle regeneration and San Francisco's long-standing plan to put thousands of new housing units on the decommissioned naval base on Treasure Island."
