Is Berkeley’s David Brower Center completely green?

    Yes, in that the builders seem to be doing everything possible at this point to reduce their carbon footprint. Among their innovations are building with recycled materials that don’t give off harmful chemicals, using sunlight instead of electric lights during the day, numerous solar panels that also provide shade, collecting rainwater for various uses including flushing toilets, and sophisticated ventilation to ensure air quality. All buildings have some negative environmental impact, of course, and the center’s site does not mention whether they buy carbon offsets to neutralize the impact they do have. But, like the programs that go on inside it, the building is meant to minimize harm to the environment.
