Green Design Summit

If you're like most architects and interior designers, you're feeling the
pinch of the economy. You are not alone. 

Some firms are facing difficult decisions about closing their businesses
or reducing staff. At the same time, there are firms that are busier 
than ever.

What are they doing differently?

They are specialists in eco-friendly and sustainable design. They've
built their brand around environmental responsibility and the consumer-
driven demand for energy-efficient and healthy spaces and buildings.

In fact, 82% of Americans believe it is "important for companies to
implement environmentally friendly practices." - McGraw Hill

Do you need to be LEED certified to get this business and promote
green products and services? No, but it helps.
