We are honored to announce Gensler as our newest Green Level sponsor.
Gensler's goal is to promote broader awareness about the environmental impact that buildings have on the world, and contribute to conversations about the leadership role that the architecture, engineering and construction industries can play in global efforts to answer the challenges posed by climate change.
Impact by Design 2017 is Gensler’s second annual publication analyzing the sustainable performance of their work. In it, they provide a comprehensive look at the energy performance and the carbon impact of their design work, a broad analysis of how new innovations in design, engineering, and technology are improving the sustainable footprint of the global built environment, and recently completed projects that exemplify sustainable design in action, while noting specific strategies or design aspects that have made noticeable differences.
Gensler projects that push the boundaries of sustainable performance include PartnersHealthCare, Etsy Headquarters, Gensler New York offices, and the International Interior Design Association. Some of the strategies implemented with the greatest opportunity to make an impact are tree canopy shading, LED lighting, real-time performance modeling, Energy Star appliances, and demand response appliances.
Welcome to our sponsoring partner community, Gensler. We are proud to have you as a partner and look forward to accomplishing great things together.
