Sustainable Development "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." (United Nations. 1987.)
Net-Zero includes strategies that emphasize taking a systems approach to reducing water, energy, and waste footprints in installations and communities. These strategies provide long-term solutions for sustainability and resilience by meeting the environmental objectives of clean air and water, and by reducing or eliminating waste sent to landfill, while ensuring the long-term viability of resources is not only maintained but also improved.
This movement is fundamentally influenced by emerging technologies that shape energy development. Such as transforming our buildings into engines of clean energy that mitigate Global Climate Change.
Design that utilizes the sun efficiently.
Passive Airflow using Convection Ventilation. 70° All Year Round.
Independent Power Systems.
Indoor Green Spaces that resemble Outdoor Environments.
Today's buildings are responsible for using up to 40% of all the energy produced in the United States. 30-40% of the world's food is wasted. Globally Renewable energy makes up 24% of electricity generation.
Renewable Energy sources are becoming more popular as they do not contribute to Global climate change. Options like solar, wind and even geothermal can be easily adapted to the modern day home.
80% of the worlds fresh water is used in Agriculture, this precious resource must be carefully used and protected. 11% of the worlds population (790 million) still don't have access to improved water.
