We are pleased to announce that we have launched a product design initiative that includes consumer products, building products, and much more. Bill McDonough has, in the past, worked with such companies as Shaw Industries, MechoSystems, and DesignTex to design product lines, and now this effort is being expanded. We’ll have more to share by the start of the new year.
We are also now assisting organizations and communities in renewable energy optimization, helping them to find cost-effective, additional renewable power where appropriate and helping them to use anticipatory design to plan for a future of continuous improvement. We are engaging in a variety of partners on this effort, including Cherokee, an investment firm with a powerful renewables portfolio and a history of transforming environmental liabilities into assets.
