Skanska Quits U.S. Chamber Over Anti-LEED Lobbying – News – Greensource Magazine

International construction giant Skanska USA has terminated its membership in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce due to what the firm views as attempts to “halt progress in sustainable building.” The move reportedly came after failed talks with the U.S. Chamber about its policies, and it follows on the heels of a pro-LEED op-ed in the Washington Post penned by Michael McNally, president and CEO of Skanska USA …

“They hide behind words like ‘consensus,’ which is nonsense,” he said. “They know better.” McNally adds, “How could you ever have a standard like this and have 100 percent yesses? If you wind back the clock, we’d still have lead paint—because God forbid we push the lead-paint people out and not get consensus!”
