    • eco-aware design What influence do you have as a designer? on manufacturers on clients on customers How will you use your influence? Thursday, 7 May 2009
    • conversation with our customers We work at the margin: competing on price, quality, durability, availability, design and finally on sustainability. We give incentives to help people make rational choices to buy eco-aware products. But the incentives aren’t all environmental: price, quality, design are available to all our competitors. We have just one point of difference. The principle we work to: connected value (if you don’t go all the way to your goal, all the time and effort you invest along the way is lost). e.g. BREEAM, LEED, ISO14001 Thursday, 7 May 2009
