Presentation Summary:
“Greening UP” is a presentation about many of the choices we can make to improve our environment and in many cases our long term physical and financial health via our surroundings. It looks at global, national and local issues in a concise way to illustrate options we have with those issues. It includes new technologies as well as past tried and true ones with great success. The last part is a case study of our own “green” office that utilizes many of those techniques and shows the real benefits thereby posing the question, “why not more and more?”.
