Green Living

February 2015

Robert J. Kobet, AIA, LEED Faculty

Lately, I have been thinking a lot about retirement funds, social security benefits, TIA-CREF accounts and how blessed I am to have a little put away for when I decide not to work full time anymore. That is something that will happen much sooner than later, and I am looking forward to it. As I approach retirement age everything from Medicare and Medicaid to where I’d like to live and what I want to do with what’s left of my time and energy loom large. I’ve never fancied myself an investment genius, and have been willing to let others much more skilled than I guide my modest assets. Several years ago I was struck by how Bernie Madoff devastated the financial security of thousands by operating an investment Ponzi scheme that made him and a few of his associates billions. More recently I am reminded of how fluctuating oil prices can rock global economies, effecting everything from Russia’s ability to maintain its occupation of neighboring Crimea and the Ukraine, to how terrorist groups fund their very existence, to nightly stories about the economic viability of exploring for carbon fuels in the US. The latter brings back memories of the first OPEC oil crisis in the early 70s and how we are still bound up in geopolitics and wars in part because of our reliance on foreign oil. Yet “Big Oil” remains the bedrock of many retirement and investment portfolios.

I have always been interested in environmental influences that impact socio-economic trends, but I did not foresee how important the global green economy would become. And, while global market forces seem overwhelming and out of our personal control, there are a few colloquialisms that apply; we vote with our feet, and money talks. Our actions speak louder than words, and the decisions we make about spending our personal time, energy and resources can be a powerful influence for good. Hence, the important of green investing as a function of green living.

Investing can take on many forms, and need not be characterized by grand gestures or large sums of money. Spending money at a particular enterprise is akin to investing in their stock, though the nature of the investment and return may be quite different. Typically we want our time, energy and the resources we expend to be aligned with our personal values and philosophies. If our goal is to live green, these frequently reflect our views on environmental stewardship and what we expect from those who govern. Green investments recognize that business practices affect the environment, consumers, workers at all levels, our communities and society at large. Our individual priorities, investment goals and means by which we pursue them may vary widely, but they generally fall into three categories:

1. Commitment to serving our community and society in general.

In many this category is the most attainable, visible and immediate. When we invest our time, skills and energy in working with local organizations committed to the common good our involvement is often as valuable as or more valuable than a monetary donation. Any organization that has environmental stewardship or social equity as part of its mission is a possible candidate. Local efforts include getting involved in any number of school related needs, community gardens, tree planting and trail maintenance, food banks, meals on wheels and a number of others. Most communities have a Goodwill center, Salvation Army depot, United Way, Red Cross, or emergency responder organization, all of which can use our help. In addition to cash donations, any time spent volunteering that offsets an expense is an investment in an organization’s ability to perform their services.


2. Ethical management practices and high labor standards for employees and those in a supply chain.

Labor standards and the human factors concerns associated with supply chains range from small, local business that may employ a few undocumented workers, to international scandals involving foreign governments, trade agreement violations and organizations who knowingly support human trafficking. In contrast, many companies want to be seen as champions of fair labor practice and environmental stewardship, buying locally and investing in the community. Buying their products or investing in them supports their cause.

One example is Vivendi, a French media and telecommunications giant recognized as one of the greenest companies in the world. It has made significant efforts to lower carbon emissions and to be environmentally responsible throughout all of its subsidiaries. Maroc Telecom, Vivendi’s telecommunications subsidiary in Morocco, uses solar energy to power a total of 632 of its sites. Global Village Telecom, Vivendi’s subsidiary in Brazil, requires its suppliers to adhere to the sustainability and corporate responsibility principles of the United Nations Global Compact. Vivendi was also one of the first companies, to tie its executives’ annual pay to the environmental and social performance of the company.

A better-known example in the global green building movement is the Forest Stewardship Council. FSC Certification is based on verifying a number the environmental and social equity criteria. Their supply chain custody compact insures the wood based products it certifies are ecologically sound and socially correct. FSC is the default organization referenced by the US Green Building Council in its LEED rating system. By purchasing FSC certified products or investing in companies that participate in the FSC certification process, the consumer is supporting the tenets of sustainability in that segment of the green building industry.

Another is Interface Global, a US based, internationally known carpet products supplier. Founder and chairman Ray Anderson set a new standard for environmental stewardship in 1994 when he launched his effort to become a world leader in sustainability in manufacturing and human relations. Based on Bill McDonough’s Cradle-to-Cradle philosophy, the story of Interface is legendary in green building circles. It has inspired a revolution in other green building industries worthy of investment.

Starbucks and Whole Foods also strive to maintain high environmental standards and good employee relations. Recently Starbucks agreed to pay for college tuition to over 40 programs at Arizona State University for all benefits-eligible partners based in the U.S. To be eligible they must work in support centers, plants or at any company-operated enterprise including Teavana, La Boulange, Evolution Fresh and Seattle’s Best Coffee stores, and must not yet have a bachelor’s degree. Freshman and sophomores will receive a partial scholarship and need-based financial aid toward completing their degree. Participants will have no commitment to remain at Starbucks past graduation.


3. Dedication to producing quality products that are safe.

In this instance, “safe” means anything that uses human and natural ecology as design and manufacturing determinants, and which do not degrade the environment. Like ethical management practices, these gestures can be small and personal, or manifest themselves on an international scale. “Quality products” are typically those that are non-toxic, durable, locally manufactured, easily recycled or otherwise kept in use. In the best case they elevate the human spirit, support the arts and local artists and otherwise transcend simple, temporary utility. They do not contain volatile organic compounds or products derived from endangered species, endocrine blockers, carcinogens or other components that are unsafe to ingest, breathe or touch. Simple examples include buying food from community supported organic agriculture outlets, and eliminating anything that is genetically modified. Related products include those used for green cleaning and personal hygiene, which are environmentally benign. Others are dedicated to child safety and wholesome play activities, which do not condone violent behavior or support human conflict.


The art and science of personal investing in purely financial terms is best done with the help of an investment counselor unless you are well versed in the tools and strategies necessary to invest successfully. An internet search using keywords such as green investing, green businesses, return on green investments or green companies will serve to get you started. The exercise usually starts with a self-assessment of ones’ current holdings to determine which are green and which may benefit from additional consideration. Green investments are subject to market forces and volatility in the same way non-green investments are, and therefore need the same care and attention to detail. The same qualities and attributes inherent in traditional stocks and bonds apply to green investment products, and each is subject to the same laws, tax consideration, ownership and transfer considerations.

Green investments do not guarantee superior returns on investment, but there is no reason to believe a financial sacrifice is required to participate in green business opportunities. Many green companies are doing quite well and are projected to continue that way. It is said “the bottom line of green is black”. To the extent that is true, green investments can contribute to a green life well lived.

Weekly Tips

Winter is a great time to take an infrared look at your home

February 23, 2015

Thermal imaging is the art and science of using equipment that can analyze surface temperatures and render them in colors that depict the presence or transfer of heat. This technology is invaluable in doing home energy audits or verifying the effectiveness of newly constructed or renovated building envelopes. Building wall and ceiling surfaces can be viewed from inside or outside, depending on the task at hand or the information that is needed.

Thermal imaging technology used to be limited by the cost and complexity of the equipment, and whether the imaging information had to be processed or transferred in other media. It was largely a tool used by utility companies, or highly trained home energy auditors. It has become a basic application of professional home energy certified by the Building Performance Institute, and is increasingly relied upon by insulation contractors to evaluate before and after conditions in home insulation retrofits. The ability to “make the invisible, visible” plays an important role in quality control and the ability to cost effectively perform energy conservation efforts without wasting time and material.

Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging – making the invisible, visible

Today, thermal imaging technology resides in a growing number of handheld cameras that can reveal heat gains and losses due to conduction, infiltration and radiation through a home’s walls, windows and roof surfaces. Many cost less than $100, are completely portable, and can be used with personal computers to graph the information on spreadsheets. Interested homeowners can order the equipment online.

Winter is a great time to look at your home using thermal imaging. Images are most vivid and distinct when the outside weather conditions are well below interior set temperatures, as the resultant heat flows are pronounced. In the best case, homeowners can be involved in determining what kind of weatherization’s efforts are necessary, if any, and use the thermal images produced to prioritize work.

We carry a full line of weatherization materials to help you remedy any decencies you discover using the technology. Contact us through the Request a Quote to learn more.

Solar panels on rooftop

Solar (PV) Systems

Why sign a lease on equipment you don't own? GreenEdge Supply will sell you the power system. This will give the homeowner the opportunity to qualify for any available tax credits, as well as local and federal incentives. The solar system that we installed on the 2015 New American Home provides 15.39 KW DC. This will provide the homeowner with enough power to offset their energy consumption. The homeowner, with optimal power consumption, will have the chance to earn monthly municipal energy credits that will be applied to their power bill. They are also eligible to earn Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECS), which carry a monetary value. As these REC certificates are accrued, they may be sold or traded on a REC market, similar to a commodity.
