CREW Boston

GREENING AFFORDABLE HOUSING, a Book Talk with Kimberly Vermeer

The Sustainability Group was excited and pleased to present long-time CREW Boston member Kimberly Vermeer to speak about her new book, Blueprint for Greening Affordable Housing, Revised Edition. In the book, she and co-author Walker Wells present a comprehensive resource on how green building principles can be incorporated into affordable housing design, construction, and operation. This fully revised edition captures the rapid evolution of green building practices and makes a compelling case for integrating green building into affordable housing. They argue that cities must embrace green affordable housing in the face of climate change and the affordable housing crisis.

In Blueprint for Greening Affordable Housing, they present guidance on innovative green building practices and green building certifications available for affordable housing. Brand new case studies offer detailed insights and inspiration on ways to incorporate a green building’s many elements into a range of affordable housing sizes, types, and locations. Kim also announced the upcoming launch of her new podcast! Green Horizons will feature stories of green leadership in affordable housing. Learn more about the book and the podcast at
