it really matter how energy efficient a building is if the
environments we are creating are full of toxins? Don't you
think we should be thinking about long-term impacts rather
than short-term gains? Through research, utilizing a variety
of professional peers, following various certification
guidelines and contacting a variety of third party
certification we are designing interiors, which are healthy,
use less energy and are beautiful.This
presentation will outline why you should know the answers to
these important questions:
you know who specifies your building materials?
you know when the building material was designed?
you know what the building material you are using is made
you know where the building material you specify comes
you know why it is important to know where the building
materials you specify were made?
you know how much energy was used to produce them or get
them to your site?
goal of this presentation is to bring awareness that the
business of green is more than just energy efficiency and
short-term costs. The real business of green needs to be about
health, quality of life and long-term consequences.
