As a supplement to this month’s feature, Sustainable Design Literacy: A Foundation for Transformed Practice, BuildingGreen has compiled a list of books that can help designers develop and maintain their sustainability knowledge.

The list includes recommendations from sustainable design leaders and educators, as well as some of BuildingGreen’s trusted, “go-to” books. A varied mix of older classics and notable newer books, what follows is by no means an exhaustive or comprehensive list, but a selection of great places to start for building well-rounded sustainability literacy.
