Celebrating the wins for sustainability

Published on Written by Posted in LEED

In my first environmental management class, the instructor posed a very simple question: “Do you wake up in the morning overwhelmed with all that is wrong with the world, or are you optimistic about where things are heading?” There was a very long pause and then the teacher replied, “I agree.  It depends on the day.”
