GSBN:insurance, generally

Fireman's Fund may be an insurance company to watch with some hope.
Last week they introduced customizable coverage for commercial green
buildings: "In response to commercial real estate's green building
movement evolving from the benefits to the environment and building
owner's bottom line, Fireman's Fund Insurance Company today announced
Certified Green Building Replacement and Green Upgrade coverages."

This may be the beginning of the sort of reform St. Eisenberg has
been nudging for the past several years, and with any luck will
extend to the residential market at some point.

A press release from Fireman's:
